Since October 2020 the responsibility for the commissioning of Adult Secure Care mental health, learning disability and autism services has transferred from NHS England Specialised Commissioning to Provider Collaboratives (PC's). Fifteen PC's nationally coordinate and deliver care for adult patients requiring low and medium secure care. The East Midlands area PC is called IMPACT.
IMPACT is a partnership of 9 NHS and independent sector providers and is led by Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust as the Lead Provider.
The other organisations in the collaborative are:
- Cygnet Healthcare
- Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
- Elysium Healthcare, Leicestershire Partnerships NHS Trust
- Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust
- Lincolnshire Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust
- Northamptonshire NHS Foundation Trust
- Priory Healthcare
- St Andrews Healthcare
In order to preserve integrity and avoid conflicts of interest, Nottinghamshire Healthcare FT as the Lead Provider developed an arms-length commissioning and clinical oversight function (the IMPACT commissioning hub). IMPACT’s commissioning hub’s role involves understanding the local population and empowering local clinicians and Experts by Experience to design improved pathways of care. Through the Lead Provider arrangements IMPACT also sub-contract other providers e.g. to support discharges from secure care, assure the quality of services and lead the necessary reporting regionally and nationally to NHS England.
We are recruiting to a substantive full-time position of Case Manager who will join our Clinical Commissioning Hub’s team of case managers. This is an excellent opportunity for a highly motivated, clinically and operationally skilled staff member. We are seeking an individual who relishes the challenge of working with patients and building on strong relationships across our provider collaborative. The post holder will work directly with a designated caseload of patients in a range of different secure care settings. You will additionally support the wider IMPACT team to monitor quality, safeguarding and commissioning intelligence to improve outcomes for the entire patient population.
Case management is a recognised national role within the NHS and a national network of peers is well established who work cooperatively to manage complex patient cases. Case Managers come from all professional backgrounds and disciplines, which adds to the strength of these teams, and as such we would like to hear from candidates from any professional discipline who consider they fit the criteria for this post.
Possession of a relevant professional qualification is essential, as well as knowledge of wider mental health services and ICS systems. Direct experience of working in specialised secure care mental health, learning disability & autism and forensic services is desirable. In addition, an understanding and experience of dealing with quality and clinical governance systems is required, as well as a proven track record of having excellent interpersonal and organisational skills.
Full induction, training and opportunities for continuous professional development will be provided. We have access within our collaborative to nationally respected clinicians who are available to support with clinical supervision, professional development and mentorship expected for this role. While there will be home working, travel within the East Midlands and beyond will be expected for this post.
