NHS North East London
This job is now closed
North East London (NEL) has a growing population of babies, children and young people (BCYP), with marked diversity and high levels of poverty, whose health has worsened over the course of the pandemic. We are putting in place an ambitious long-term programme of work to help our BCYP populations both recover from the pandemic and improve their overall health outcomes. Our mission will be to inspire our professionals and communities to lead a relevant and impactful programme, which is one of the four main strategic priorities of NHS NEL. Central to our work is the belief that we can best improve services through unleashing the potential of our staff, harnessing their creativity and passion through establishing a safe learning environment. Co-producing the programme together with children and young people will be a central theme. We aspire to have a wide-ranging impact on the quality of care provided - with better outcomes, more efficient services, a more engaged workforce and higher user satisfaction.
We are seeking to appoint a clinical lead to support this programme of work.
We encourage applications for all multidisciplinary professional groups and in particular would welcome application from interested candidates from a Black, Asian and Minority ethnic background.
