We are recruiting for a number of new positions with flexible working patterns to help support new ways of working within health and care in Leeds.

Local Care Partnerships

Leeds is supporting a model of joined up working (Local Care Partnerships – LCPs) to deliver local care for local people, working in and with local communities to improve health and well-being All LCP’s share the same key feature –a range of people working together, regardless of the employing organisation, to deliver joined up collaborative care that meets the needs of each local population. LCPs build the strengths and extensive history of collaboration in the city to realise some of the most exciting, person centred transformation in health and care.

LCPs are in development and require a range of support. You will be part of a new focused team from different backgrounds across health, social care, third sector and academia to support this important work. The team will provide central capacity to accelerate transformation and change across all LCPs. The LCP development team will be supporting multiple projects and partnerships to form.

Population Health Management

Leeds wants to be a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest improve their health the fastest. We believe that using a Population Health Management (PHM) approach will be a key mechanism to enable us to achieve this commitment and have already used this approach to improve outcomes for people living with frailty in Leeds.

We are about to begin the next part of the Leeds Population health management journey working with ‘Wave 2’ of our Local Care Partnerships and would like to recruit a team of Project Support Officers to join us to help this exciting roll out and support implementation and evaluation of specific initiatives.
