The newly formed EPR Team is excited to announce a fixed term or secondment opportunity as an EPR Programme Manager.

We are committed to developing, investing in and deploying an Electronic Patient Record (EPR) solution for Barking, Havering & Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) in conjunction with Barts Health NHS Trust. We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to join our dynamic team to manage the parts of the programme that most directly involve Barts Health.

Main duties of the job

The EPR Programme Manager will be responsible for working with the BHRUT EPR Programme Manager in developing the PMO to manage the EPR programme, to effect change in a timely way and aligning the programme to the priorities of both trusts.

The role is responsible for project delivery including project management and benefits realisation, alongside:

o Managing the implementation of the EPR programme from initiation to completion, including coordinating recruitment of required resources and management of the programme plan with particular responsibility for those parts of the plan that involve Barts resources and processes.o Ensuring that, once implemented, new EPR systems are professionally transferred to operational services.

About us

Under the leadership of our Chair Jacqui Smith and Matthew Trainer, our Chief Executive, we provide care for the residents of three of the most diverse London boroughs. More than half of our 7,500 strong workforce are from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups and most live in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge. We also provide healthcare services to people in south west Essex, and specialist neurosciences services to the whole of the county.

Our services include all the major specialties of large acute hospitals, operating from two main sites - King George Hospital in Goodmayes and Queen's Hospital in Romford. We also provide outpatient services at Brentwood Community Hospital, Barking Hospital, Loxford Polyclinic, and Harold Wood Polyclinic. We have two of the busiest emergency departments in London.

As we recover from Covid-19, we're proud to be leading the way nationally in reducing the time our patients wait to get the treatment they need. The pandemic provided the drive for our teams to innovate and change.

We know we have more work to do to improve waiting times for urgent and emergency care, and our performance against the four-hour emergency access standard remains challenged, in comparison to many other London trusts.

We are particularly proud of our regional Neurosciences Centre Radiotherapy Centre Hyper Acute Stroke Unit and dedicated breast care service at King George Hospital. We're also pleased to be part of the NEL Cancer Alliance.
