Antivirals Project Manager (Data & Governance)
NHS AfC: Band 7
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.
In April 2021, the Government established an Antivirals Taskforce (ATF) with the aim of identifying new COVID antiviral medicines. New oral antivirals could be an important part of the long-term response to COVID-19. If deployed rapidly, they have potential to reduce symptoms, disease progression, hospitalisation rates and onward transmission, as well as helping to reduce mortality. The first of the new medicines received was approved for use in the NHS in December 2021.
The NHSE&I antivirals wider deployment programme has been established to provide oversight and drive deployment of the new COVID antivirals in primary care and community settings in the NHS. The programme reports jointly into the ATF and to the national medical director in NHSE&I.
Antivirals Wider Deployment Programme Aim is to extend access of approved COVID oral antivirals from a small very high-risk group to wider patient cohorts, subject to clinical evidence, including from the PANORAMIC trial.
