Commissioning Manager – Urgent and Integrated Care

Job Reference: 256-SD027

NHS Surrey Downs CCG
Cedar Court, 36 Guildford Rd, Fetcham, Leatherhead KT22 9AE
£44,606 - £50,819 pro rata pa plus Fringe HCAS

The Surrey Heartlands STP plan is ambitious on behalf of local residents and will deliver a number of key benefits:

  • Improving the quality of services with better outcomes – reducing the impact of long-term disease on people’s lives and improving patient experience of health and care services;
  • Enhanced well-being – local people experiencing better physical and mental health;
  • Improved access to healthcare – shorter waiting times and services closer to home.

Surrey Heartlands has also signed a devolution agreement with NHSE – the second after Greater Manchester to do so; this means that, as a partnership, the NHS and Local Government are able to accelerate the integration of health and social care, increase public engagement around the reform and increase local decision-making and flexibilities.

We are seeking an energetic and enthusiastic individual with a ‘can do’ positive approach to deliver in the role of Commissioning Manager – Urgent and Integrated Care; you will work closely with colleagues across the health and care system, frontline clinicians and senior leaders to support the delivery of high quality, responsive urgent and integrated care across the full spectrum of services and providers.

As a member of the strategic programme team, the post holder will deliver on the Urgent and Integrated Care portfolio to drive service change through stakeholder engagement, planning, managing and delivering a range of service redesign programmes. The post-holder will have the opportunity to support and lead on some of the Surrey Heartlands CCGs’ high profile projects such as the design and implementation of integrated health and social care across the area to provide joined up system wide services.

Furthermore, the role will work on a range of local Surrey Downs CCG service transformation projects to support the achievement of important quality standards across urgent and integrated care and delivery of the system’s change programme to achieve effective system resilience and sustainability. The post-holder will manage the whole project cycle from initiation to completion, driving system-wide change to realise affordable, quality, service improvements.

The role will require a versatile skill set, capable of operating within a high intensity environment responding to day to day operational challenges, ensuring that the CCGs are assured of the safety and efficiency of urgent and integrated care services primarily in Surrey Downs. The successful candidate will be highly motivated, with an ability to implement practical solutions to operational problems; taking on an active role in building strong relationships with partners and NHS E.
