Job summary

Do you want to be part of an innovative, dynamic team that is committed to delivering the best care by the best people? We are looking to appoint people who are as passionate about high quality care as we are.

The four acute Trusts in Humber and North Yorkshire have come together to form the Collaboration of Acute Providers (CAP), to work together on transformational change programmes at scale.

The Collaboration of Acute Providers is hosted by York and Scarborough Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is an integral part of the Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care System. As a system we are embarking on major transformational change across our urgent care, elective care and diagnostic services. As part of a dynamic Programme Team, we are looking for enthusiastic and experienced people to drive our change programme and deliver on our ambitions for our patients.

As Programme Manager you will take the lead on high impact elective care programmes, reporting to the Programme Lead/ Director and working closely with the clinical and operational leadership teams within the acute trusts and across system partners to drive and facilitate change.

Main duties of the job

The Elective Programme Manager is a key member of the CAP and is responsible for providing strategic leadership and direction on the delivery of the elective programme across the Humber and North Yorkshire, working closely with colleagues across the Integrated Care System (ICS).

The post holder will be responsible for assurance of the elective programme, ensuring effective system wide engagement with a range of key stakeholders.

The post holder will be a subject matter expert ensuring that support and advice is always available to the CAP on issues regarding elective services. This will require highly effective analysis and interpretation of elective data and guidelines to recommend and make judgments on service recovery and transformation across the CAP.

The post holder will provide senior representation for Humber and North Yorkshire (HNY) at regional meetings and other senior meetings as required.
