GP IT Facilitator Role

We are looking for a dynamic and conscientious person to join our Digital Facilitation Team, as part of the wider Digital Directorate, which works across the Sussex Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). This role holds a significant amount of personal responsibility and accountability: You will need to be someone who can self-motivate, problem-solve and manage your own workload and priorities. You will possess excellent interpersonal and communication skills to be able to build relationships with the GP Practices you work with and be able to support with local and national GP IT work programmes and projects by delivering business change.


You will be part of a team of 12 Digital Facilitators and will provide training and support in line with the GP IT Operating Model, GP IT Futures and Digital First Programmes. You should be up to date with NHS Digital policy issues and technologies, General Medical Services (GMS) contract and relevant national guidance, assisting with change management and implementation where appropriate. On occasions, you will be expected to support delivery of change within the CCG Corporate environment although this will be limited.


We are looking to recruit in different areas of Sussex and there would be an expectation for you to travel in the area where you live and work, but also across into other areas of Sussex as required and dependant on the programme of work. For more information on this, please contact the recruiting manager.
