Our Organisation

NHS England and NHS Improvement came together on 1 April 2019 as a new single organisation. The NHS Long Term Plan focuses on delivering integrated care to patients at the local level and we can best support the NHS to deliver this as a single integrated organisation.

At the NHS, we are reminded every day of how important life is. As a flexible working friendly organisation, we want to be sure that you can work in a way that is best for us and for our patients, and for you. Speak to us about how we might be able to accommodate a flexible working arrangement whether that's job share, part time or another flexible pattern. In addition, although the role advertised may have an 'home' office base indicated, we remain committed to supporting flexibility around workplace locations. If it works for the service, we will do our best to make it work for you.

Our new operating model represents a strong shift to regional delivery supported by expert corporate teams. Local health systems are supported by our integrated regional teams who play a major leadership role in the geographies they manage.

We are jointly committed to creating and maintaining a fair and supportive working environment and culture, where contributions are fully recognised and valued by all and staff feel empowered to carry out their duties to the best of their abilities. As employers we are committed to promoting and protecting the physical and mental health and well-being of all our staff. This underpins our values as set out in the NHS Constitution, supports us to be an Employer of Choice and ultimately enables our employees to support the effective care of our patients.

Following a process of organisational re-alignment, NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSEI) now working together to support local health systems and the patients and public we serve. Our new operating model is focused on providing a single system view, common messaging and shared leadership is aligned with the stated objectives of the NHS White Paper to establish and support the introduction of Integrated Care Systems as statutory organisations.

Working to the Regional Medical Director, the Medical Directors for System Improvement & Professional Standards are key clinical leadership roles within the North East and Yorkshire (NEY) regional health system. In conjunction with the other Executive Directors from the NHSEI Regional Office, these two roles will working alongside clinicians from across the professional spectrum to ensure the delivery of high quality clinical services for the region's population - one role will have a particular focus on the North East and North Cumbria and the other on Yorkshire and the Humber.

The Medical Directors for System Improvement & Professional Standards role will be key clinical contact points between the NHSEI NEY Regional Office and the four ICSs (and the organisations within them) as they look to implement the national NHS Long Term Plan to improve patient outcomes and reduce health inequalities whilst supporting the recovery of services from the COVID pandemic.

We are seeking applicants with a significant level of experience in a senior clinical leadership roles, with a strong track record of delivery of quality and health outcome improvements and of working across health and care systems. Applications are welcomed from senior clinicians working in primary, community, secondary and tertiary care, that provide either physical health, mental health care or integrated care services or have senior clinical roles in commissioning organisations.
