Haemoglobinopathy Co-ordinating Centre Network Manager

Job Reference: 358-2175147-CHU

Employer:
University Hospitals of Leicester
Department:
Management
Location:
Leicester Royal Infirmary, Leicester with travel to other centres
Salary:
£37,570 - £43,772 per annum

Applications are invited for a Network Manager to support the recently commissioned Haemoglobinopathy Co-ordinating Centre (HCC) for the East Midlands region. This is a new post designed to support the clinical teams in operational development of this service.

The East Midlands Sickle cell and Thalassaemia network, founded in 2009, has a history of collaborative working across all clinical sites in the region. A recent review by NHS England has identified ten Co-ordinating Centres for sickle cell disease care across the country. As host for the East Midlands HCC, UHL aims to build on these previous relationships to improve patient care and outcomes.

The post will be based in Leicester but will involve regular travel around the five provider Trusts, (with potentially occasional travel further afield,) so a clean driving licence and access to a car is essential.

UHL’s purpose is to deliver “Caring at its best” for all the people who visit Leicester’s hospitals, either as patients, the public or as staff. As one of the largest and busiest teaching hospitals, our vision is to move from where we are now to where we want to be. UHL's new Quality Improvement Strategy is called "Becoming the Best". In becoming part of our team you too can show your commitment to the delivery of high quality services to patients with our Trust values.

If you wish to discuss this post please contact Dr Amy Webster, Clinical Lead and Consultant Haematologist 0116 258 6616 or Clare Blakemore, General Manager 0116 258 6925.




We will close vacancies prior to the published closing date if we receive a sufficient number of application forms.

Preference will be given in the first instance to existing NHS employees within the East Midlands healthcare community who are ‘at risk’ of redundancy. Such employees within the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust will be considered first.”
