Regional Hepatitis C Elimination Co-ordinator – Midlands (Secondment fixed term until July 2022 with possible extension – location flexible)

*Opportunity restricted to NHS APA members – posts band 8A 37.5 hpw

In 2002 Inclusion was created as part of the award winning South Staffordshire & Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, now known as Midlands Partnership Foundation NHS Trust. It was developed to provide evidence based and innovative services to beneficiaries across England. In 2016 Inclusion with fellow NHS trusts created the NHS Addiction Provider Alliance (NHS APA) – a collaboration of 15 NHS trusts who work together to improve the quality of drug and alcohol treatment services.

A secondment opportunity has arisen within Inclusion (as lead provider and part of the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust) to lead the NHS APA/Gilead Life Sciences regional initiatives in the Midlands to eliminate Hepatitis C. The opportunity is restricted to those employees who work within a NHS APA trust member service. These trusts include Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust, Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, Central and North West LondonNHS Foundation Trust , Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Inclusion (Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust), Leeds and York Partnership NHS Trust, North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust, Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Partnership Trust and Merseycare NHS Foundation trust.

This initiative is designed to work through NHS APA community drug and alcohol services in the region to identify people who have not been identified supporting them into testing, treatment and recovery from Hepatitis C.

This is part of the NHS England procurement and ambition to eradicate Hepatitis C by 2023. This role involves ensuring best practice is shared amongst NHS APA members and to support the roll out of initiatives across NHS APA trusts across the Midlands.

This role requires a skilled, dedicated and passionate individual who can work with a wide range of stakeholders including service users, the Gilead Patient Access to Care team, ODNs, colleagues in NHS APA member trusts and NHS England to achieve positive results from the initiative for those who have Hepatitis C.

The closing date for these posts is 11pm on the 8th January.

Interviews will take place week beginning the 11th January online via Microsoft Teams.
