We have a fantastic opportunity for a Digital Programme Manager to join us. We are seeking self-motivated, experienced candidates who can influence, drive and deliver the requirements of a major digital change programme.

Following years of joint working between North Tees & Hartlepool and South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trusts, we have formally agreed to form a group to enable closer partnership across our two organisations. By formalising this partnership, the group will deliver better outcomes for: Our patients, our staff, and thewider populationwe serve, by collaborating to work on endemic health issues and having a coherent voice to represent the people of the Tees Valley and parts of County Durham and North Yorkshire.

The group model means that our two organisations remain separate so they can represent their communities effectively, but it has the flexibility to enable the Trusts to work at scale to take strategic decisions, which benefit the group as a whole and the patients we serve.

This is a complex and exciting programme of change. Our group is ambitious to deliver more together for the populations we serve developing clinical services that reflect the best use of resources. We will achieve this by working together to improve the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve, tackling the long-term inequalities in health that the pandemic has exacerbated, and playing a part in bringing more inward investment to the area.
