COVID-19 Vacancy Primary Care Senior Manager (Transformation)

NHS AfC: Band 8c

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.


We are seeking a motivated individual to join the North East and Yorkshire Primary Care Team to help drive forward the transformation agenda. Reporting to the Head of Primary Care Transformation, you will work with the Regional Heads of Primary Care (each working with their respective ICS) to support primary care transformation and commission primary care services.  The Primary Care Senior Manager is part of a small regional team working across the patch supporting the broad portfolio of primary care transformation including access, PCN development and workforce. 

As well as being passionate and experienced in delivering excellent primary care transformation programmes you will possess outstanding leadership skills, intellectual capability, strong interpersonal skills, and high levels of energy and commitment. It is a very busy and diverse role requiring working closely with internal and external colleagues across multiple organisational boundaries.  You will be an experienced senior leader with a significant track record in delivering transformational change, experience of commissioning and primary care, and experience of working in complex systems, and will be skilled in building credible and strong relationships with senior colleagues across the health and care sector. 

NHS England and Improvement values contributions from diverse backgrounds and would welcome applications from under-represented groups.
