Woodrow Mercer Healthcare are currently looking for a Project Manager to work with an NHS Chief Quality Officer to help deliver winter plans over the next 4/5 months.
The NHS Trust has developed a winter plan to support them to focus on the areas that will make the greatest difference to the quality of life for the service users, communities and staff they serve.
The role will play a critical function in helping coordinate their work over the coming 4-5 months, and working up some of the new, creative ideas that form part of their plan. Some of areas within the plan are already work underway, and some represent new ideas that they would like to develop and test or support through their partnerships within local communities.
This role will provide ring-fenced capacity to help them coordinate this work and actively learn from the winter planning and delivery process. The post holder will support wider engagement across the organisation with this plan, and mobilise local activism.
They envisage this role to help them focus on a small number of the new ideas within the plan, develop these further and enable testing and scaling. This will involve encouraging the application of quality improvement at local level in supporting delivery of the winter plan, and capturing learning about the factors that support and hinder people’s ability to adopt improvement as a mechanism to enable rapid and collaborative problem solving when the system is under particular pressure.
This role will help the organisation capture and curate stories at team, directorate and Trust level of how they are supporting their people (service users, local communities, staff) over the winter period – what is tested, what works or doesn’t work, challenges and barriers. This will include capturing learning about their use of data to inform decision-making, at local, directorate and Trust level through the winter and in adjusting our areas of focus.
