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 national review of neurosurgical services, the Specialised Adult Neurosurgery Programme was established with the primary aim of making improvements to the quality, equity and access to neurosurgical care and it was agreed that regional Operational Delivery Networks were the most effective way to implement these changes.

During the pandemic, eight regional neurosurgery networks were established rapidly to coordinate the response and enhance service resilience through mutual aid and actions for service protection. NHS England and NHS Improvement has now confirmed time limited funding for the continuation of the neurosurgery network as an Operational Delivery Network until the end of March 2023. 

The Network will provide strategic oversight and direction for specialised adult neurosurgical services including the design, guidance, and promotion of optimal neurosurgical care pathways and will also oversee delivery of the optimal patient pathway supporting patient flow across geographical systems and individual partnership organisations

The North East and Yorkshire specialised commissioning team has retained the funding and hosting arrangements for this network and are therefore looking to appoint to a Business Support role to coordinate the administrative side of the Network until March 2023.
