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 and drive improvements in clinical quality and efficiency and increases in productivity in area including workforce, estates and facilities management, procurement and back-office.

The post holder will support the Regional Productivity Directors and the Delivery and Implementation Directors in identifying the trusts with the greatest improvement needs and develop and track plans for subject matter experts to support these trusts make improvements.

The post holder will be responsible for ensuring that:

  • Work programmes (agreed by the Regional Productivity Director and the Delivery and Implementation Directors) to improve operational productivity in trusts actions are implemented.
  • The work of subject matter experts (e.g. procurement, estates and facilities, nursing and others) is planned and tracked effectively.
  • Information about operational productivity metrics, benchmarks and good practice is disseminated through relevant channels to trusts and NHSI staff working in the regions.
  • Appropriate and proactive action is taken by staff in the regions to address areas of significant under performance against benchmarks and good practice published on the model hospital.
  • Benefits derived from trusts addressing unwarranted variation are tracked, counted and reported in a timely manner.
