NHS Improvement is responsible for overseeing foundation trusts, NHS trusts and independent providers. We offer the support these providers need to give patients consistently safe, high quality, compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable. By holding providers to account and, where necessary, intervening, we help the NHS to meet its short-term challenges and secure its future.

NHS Improvement is the operational name for the organisation that brings together Monitor, NHS Trust Development Authority, Patient Safety, the National Reporting and Learning System, the Advancing Change team and the Intensive Support Teams.

The purpose of the Operational Productivity Directorate is to facilitate and implement Lord Carter’s recommendations for acute providers in the areas of clinical quality and efficiency, workforce productivity, estates and facilities management, procurement and corporate services.

The purpose of the Regional Implementation Lead - Diagnostic Services Consolidation role is to lead work on Pathology & Imaging services efficiency within the relevant NHSI Region through working with NHS Provider Trusts and NHSI Regional teams.  Utilising the metrics, benchmarks, and good practice toolkit, the postholder will facilitate groups of Trusts to network and consolidate services across their Region. 

They will be responsible for implementing the strategic plan for delivering Recommendation 4 of Lord Carter’s report, to increase the productivity of Pathology & Imaging services across the relevant Region.  This includes helping trusts and STPs to develop plans for consolidation of Pathology services to reduce the costs to achieve savings of £200m+ and improve the quality of services across the NHS, and to explore the potential for similar productivity and efficiency savings in Imaging services. 

They will do this by having a full understanding of health policy and legislative frameworks, interpreting NHSI policy/strategy within the local context to provide advice, and drive the required change across the Region.  The postholder will require excellent engagement and stakeholder management skills required to drive this change and have experience of leading large-scale complex change.
