We are looking for a strong, motivated and organised individual to lead a brand new Neurosurgical Operational Delivery Network (ODN) covering the Northwest of England. This new network will develop and grow over future months, working closely between the three Neurosurgical Centres in the NW of England (based in Salford, Liverpool and Preston) to agree and deliver a workplan that satisfies the national commissioning agenda for this service area, and helps improve service delivery for patients requiring Neurosurgical care.

You will have a strong track record of delivery together with an uncompromising focus on quality, service improvement and collaboration.

The post holder will lead the provision of an efficient, effective and high quality professional and well-co-ordinated neurosurgery network capable of meeting all statutory, regulatory and NHS requirements, ensuring alignment with the activity of the organisation.

The post holder will define current processes, facilitate discussions and advise colleagues as to how best practice might be adopted in the definition of future processes, document those processes as they are agreed and oversee their delivery.
