Senior Project Manager Pan Thames Paediatric LTV Programme
Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
This job is now closed
We are looking for two experienced, enthusiastic project managers with a proven track record of working with clinical teams across organisational boundaries to deliver service transformation. The post holders can be from a project manager or clinical background. Each postholder will each have a specific geographical area to cover (to be mutually agreed). The post holders will be employed by Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and will work in close collaboration with other programme team members at Evelina London and Great Ormond Street Hospitals. The post holders will work via a hybrid model of home / office work, and be required to travel to stakeholder sites as required.
Increasing numbers of children and young people (CYP) with complex conditions require additional respiratory support via Long Term Ventilation (LTV). This requires a high level of coordination of care from multiple specialties across the whole of the health and social care systems. This has put demand on acute and community healthcare services. A new Pan Thames Paediatric Long Term Ventilation Programme has recently been established, hosted by Evelina London (GSTT). The programme is under the combined governance the North Thames Paediatric Network (NTPN www.norththamespaediatricnetwork.co.uk) and the South Thames Paediatric Network (STPN www.stpn.uk) . The key aim is to bring together people working in all areas of healthcare from across these regions to ensure that children receive the highest-quality specialist care at the right time and in the right place.
Main duties of the job
Together three teams from the Royal Brompton Hospital, NTPN and STPN have worked collaboratively to extensively scope the provision of LTV services across North London and bordering East of England Trusts, South London, Kent and Medway, Surrey Heartlands and Sussex. This has led to the development of a comprehensive plan for example, to support the delivery of multiple guidelines to improve standards of care; an educational and training programme to upskill clinical teams; suggested new models for care to provide care local to home for patients and families; and new initiatives such as centralized procurement of LTV equipment to avoid delays in discharge from hospital to home.
The post holders will lead the implementation of this work.
The STPN is hosted by Evelina London. Due to the increasing numbers of patients, and changes to clinical and wider healthcare commissioning models the existing LTV RBH service has moved to be hosted under the care of the STPN, and jointly managed by the STPN and NTPN Leadership teams. This has created a new Pan Thames LTV Network. To deliver a comprehensive updated service a new clinical and programme team is being established consisting of a Clinical Director, Network Manager, Project Managers, Educators, a Welfare Advisor together with administrative and BI support. It is envisioned that some of the roles will cover specific geographically areas and the ability to travel or work in different locations may be required.
Please see the detailed Job Description and Person Specification which outline the main aims and objectives of the programme and details of the role expectations.
