Full time

Surrey Heartlands Integrated Care System (ICS) is seen as the most innovative, high profile and impactful health and social care partnership in the country. Colleagues from a diverse range of sectors are working together to integrate services around our residents, patients and communities. We have an ambitious set of plans to address people’s health and wellbeing, making sure that we can support them in the most outstanding clinical settings but also ensure that we have excellent prevention and early intervention programmes to stop needs escalating to acute settings.

We are passionate about the power of collaboration in addressing the determinants of poor health and reducing the inequalities that exist in our County. Disruptive, joined up thinking requires new shaped roles to articulate and direct it, empowering individuals to deliver the aspirations of our new organisation reflected in our products and services, designed around the needs of our citizens. These roles within our new Partnership, are critical to helping us find solutions for some of the big problems facing society and our County today, including how to provide better care for the vulnerable and those most in need, against the backdrop of financial constraints and ever growing demand and expectations of health and social care services.

To meet this challenge, through the creative and proactive management of our combined assets, we will release funding to generate new models of care, delivered by a highly motivated workforce, bringing together the best talent the NHS and Local Government has to offer.

Our digital offer will be exemplary, using data insight to ensure we are meeting and exceeding the expectations of our residents and patients, empowering them to take more ownership for their health and wellbeing and making it easier for them to access our joint services at a time and device of their choosing. As such, all of our roles share a common requirement – leadership, the vision to re-imagine the future of health and social care and the courage and tenacity to deliver it.

This is a unique, ground-breaking digital leadership role with an exciting mandate, driving the development of innovative products and services and the adoption of agile working and thinking across the Partnership, County and wider health and social care community. With a sharp focus on the transformation of the user experience, you will leverage knowledge and insight from across our combined organisations, partners and wider industry, to ensure our services are truly exemplary, beautifully designed, accessible to all, robust and simple to use, enabling those living and working within our County, to live healthy, prosperous lives. We expect this role to be of equal appeal to candidates from across the public and commercial sectors.
