The Primary Care Collaboration team leads and supports projects within Primary Care. It’s important to us that we look at what’s important to the people we serve and find creative solutions to the question ‘what matters to you?’.

We know that to create truly effective change we need to study the healthcare system that patients journey through, and identify the reasons for the frustrations, delays and duplications that happen in everyday life. With this knowledge, we look to redesign how we all work together to provide joined up, person-centred care.

Our current projects include:

Communities of Practice Assistant

Description

We’re looking for an administrative wizard, capable of writing brilliant minutes that capture people’s interest (or at least the agreed actions!). Someone who can remain calm whilst juggling complex meeting logistics.

Who we are

Welcome to Here. We help people to live well. Through partnerships with Primary Care and providers in health and social care, we create health services and solutions which are shaped around the needs of the person. We are a not-for-profit, social enterprise, membership organisation based in Brighton delivering in Sussex and nationally.

The Communities of Practice (CoP) Team is supporting Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust (SCFT) to establish Communities of Practice (CoPs) across High Weald, Lewes and the Havens. The CoPs are a multi- agency approach towards the planning, design and delivery of integrated high quality services that are tailored to individual and population needs. We want to help create a better way of working so that we can focus on the most important thing – what matters to people.

The role

This is a new role at Here. We are looking for a passionate, bright and friendly person to work in a busy and varied administration role. You will get to work with organisations across health and social care, including Community Nursing, Adult Social Care, Joint Community Rehab, East Sussex County Council, and Primary Care. The role is suited to someone with excellent logistical and people skills, and the ability to think quickly and adapt to changes as they happen.

You will be supporting the Communities of Practice (CoP) Team by using your administrative and organisational skills to assist with planning, organising and delivering a number of projects. This will include a variety of tasks, alongside a core responsibility of arranging meetings. This will include resolving logistics for internal and external meetings, (including attendance via Zoom), creating agendas, preparing/collating reports, and taking minutes.

We also need your help with writing a variety of reports showing the progress of the Multi-Agency Teams (MATs) we are establishing as part of the Communities of Practice. The Lead Primary Care Development Manager will help you to do this, and provide you with any necessary training to complete the associated data collation and analysis.

What is needed

You will be an experienced administrator, capable of taking high quality minutes and resolving conflicting meeting logistics. You will be adept at managing your own time, and remain calm when dealing with changing priorities. It would be helpful but not essential if you also had knowledge of writing reports for a variety of audiences- including basic data analysis.

What helps

People who do well here are those who care: about the broader system, about each other and about themselves.  Our Team has a reputation for delivering on time – we pride ourselves on consistently meeting the milestones agreed with our partners, and exceeding them whenever we can.

Details

Our offer

  • Annual salary of £18,243
  • Based at our brilliant offices in Brighton, with plenty of opportunity to travel around the beautiful East Sussex countryside.
  • Standard office hours.
  • Further details can be found in the Job Description and Person Specification.

What next?

Applications are invited via NHS Jobs (closing date of 17 November 2017), with interviews taking place on 23 and 24 November 2017.
