Leeds Health and Care System – Virtual Frailty Ward
Service Development/Project Manager– Internal secondment/development opportunity
Agenda for Change 8a/Local Authority equivalent (£44,606-50,819)
The Leeds Health and Care System are looking for a Service Development/Project Manager to work in partnership with clinical colleagues and senior leaders to lead the design and delivery of a new model of care: the Leeds Virtual Frailty Ward.
This is an opportunity for you to develop your skills and experience in working across organisations on a high profile multiagency service.
The Leeds Virtual Frailty Ward is an essential component of our Clinical Strategy for Frailty and will enable health and care services to work together to support more people to avoid an unnecessary hospital admission and support discharge.
The service will bring together existing health and care services with additional capacity and components to develop a multi-disciplinary Virtual Ward that will provide support for people in the community, avoiding the need for attendances to the Emergency Department and inpatient admissions where appropriate.
The service will work on the principles of the Home First strategy in Leeds, supporting people to remain in, or return to, their normal place of residence.
This post will work alongside colleagues from across the system to make this ambition a reality in 2019.
The role involves working with others to design the new service model, developing a business case and phased implementation plan, identifying clinical and system outcomes, identifying infrastructure requirements including digital solutions, and taking a lead on operational delivery of the initial phases.
We are looking for an experienced leader with strong organisational/project management skills and experience in the Leeds Health and Care System.
You will have:
- experience of partnership working
- skills in making and sustaining effective relationships across teams
- strong communication and interpersonal skills
- negotiation, influencing and problem solving skills
- an interest in improvement and innovation
You will thrive on a challenge and be action orientated with experience of leading service delivery.
The role is available to end of March 2020 to fit with project timelines.
Although the post is advertised on a full time basis, we are open to considering people with the right skillset who wish to work flexibly /less than full time.
If you are interested please contact Megan Rowlands, General Manager – Adult Business Unit, Leeds Community Healthcare on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07956 539 252 for an informal conversation and to find out about next steps.
Deadline: 5pm Wednesday 24 April.
