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 back-office.

The Associate Director of Model Hospital will be the technical lead for delivery of the Model Hospital. Following recommendations in Lord Carter’s 2016 review into Productivity in Acute Hospitals, NHS Improvement is developing the Model Hospital - a nationally available information system that will support trusts to develop a greater understanding of their comparative productivity, supporting a clearer view of productivity opportunities. The Model Hospital currently exists as an online web product developed since February 2016.

It currently holds content covering over 40 different subject areas (compartments) and has just over 12,500 users across NHS organisations. The product is extending to all Provider types, rather than a primary focus on hospitals and as system-level working develops it is likely that usage will extend further across the NHS. Plans are to move towards a broader product serving a more diverse audience from within the NHS with a full production product in coming months. Given the scale of Lord Carter's ambition, the job holder will need to be skilled in the development and delivery of enterprise class IT information systems, practices and processes. The Associate Director of Model Hospital will be responsible for the ongoing development of the Model Hospital digital platform, the success and uptake of this solution with NHS staff, and the operation of the solution in production environments.

They will also be responsible for our growth strategy into new sectors and for integration with other complementary service offerings across the NHS (e.g. Getting It Right First Time). The successful role holder will be experienced in delivering intelligence-led change programmes with senior decision-makers and clinical leaders in a health-care environment. They will also support cross-organisational working with NHS England as part of the corporate commitment and strategy to closer collaborative working for the sector.
