My client, an NHS organisation based in C. London, is looking for an Interim Programme Manager to review their intermediate care (IC) and rapid response (RR).
The ideal candidate would have previously worked in the NHS due to the complexities of the working environment.
Brief project description:
Work to review intermediate care and rapid response services across the geographical health system has shown that services are highly variable. There are five different providers of these services and the services have all been specified differently although ultimately they have the common aim of providing more intensive and rapid support for people outside of an acute setting. An opportunity analysis conducted in early 2016 also concluded that there is further room to improve these services to allow for more rapid care in the community and therefore result in a decrease in demand for admission (and possibly attendance) in an acute setting. A working group has now been created to develop and implement a plan to improve the way that IC/RR services operate now and also to work on a more transformational and ambitious project to determine how services need to operate alongside the entire pathway of care for older people over the next five years.
- Identify examples of national and international best practice to ensure that the commissioners and providers benefit from relevant innovation in IC/RR services and models of care for older people
- Provide expertise of best practice strategy and change methodologies and stakeholder knowledge in models of care for older people
- Understand NHS data and policy to create recommendations that are implementable and follow PDSA cycles when implementing in year changes
- Create data packs and slide packs to pull together information for comparisons
- Work with commissioners and providers to understand their local context and galvanise support for change ensuring that stakeholders are involved in all aspects of the work
- Drive reform and support organisational change and uptake of the initiative
- Undertake elements of practical project management to ensure that improvements follow a logical delivery schedule, delivery is timely and stakeholders are aware of when and how to be involved in delivery and evaluation
