We serve a population of 1.2 million, employ more than 3,300 staff, and operate from over 20 main sites in the community. As a multiple award winning Trust we provide mental health services for young people, adults and older people, and have a full range of child and adult community health services in Enfield. Our North London Forensic Service treats and cares for people in the criminal justice system who have mental health conditions. We also provide one of the largest eating disorders services in England, as well as drug and alcohol services, and mental health liaison services at Barnet Hospital and the North Middlesex University Hospital.

Job overview

This is a new role created to help us deliver our plans to transform our community mental health services, as part of the NHS Long Term Plan.  The transformation of our community mental health services will lead to truly integrated health and social care for adults in Barnet, Enfield and Haringey who have serious mental illness.

Our transformation plans are supported by £25m in funding and will mean the roll-out over the next three years of multi-disciplinary teams of experts working within the new Primary Care Networks and offering wraparound, holistic care to our service users and wider community.  Our aim is to support the whole person as they live with, or recover from, mental illness and to offer them support with other challenges they may face, such as debt, relationship problems, housing, education or training.  We will also focus resources on reaching those who currently face obstacles in getting the help they need.

Main duties of the job

This is a role of strategic importance that will be required to champion the Trust’s community transformation programme, managing a range of partner relationships across a complex system, including NCL, Primary Care Networks, and Local Authorities.

This role will include responsibility for providing senior clinical and operational leadership as part of the community transformation programme and will work collaboratively with senior leaders to ensure high quality care for all service users.

The post holder will play a critical role ensuring the clinical and operational success of the Trust’s community transformation programme. Reporting to the Director of Programme Management Office, the Programme Director will demonstrate strong clear leadership, commitment and drive and will demonstrate the highest professional standards in driving through the change initiatives, working Trust-wide with Executives and Divisions.
