The Leeds Health and Social Care system is looking to appoint a System Flow and Pathway Co-ordinator to lead the implementation and delivery of the discharge to assess model as set out in the ‘Hospital discharge service: policy and operating model’ updated on 16 September 2020.

Organisation: NHS Leeds CCG

Job Title: System Flow and Pathway Coordinator

Hours: 30 – 37.5 hours per week.

Length of Contract: Six months temporary contract or secondment

Closing Date: Monday 1 March

Interview Date: Monday 8 March

A key function of the post will be the oversight and co-ordination of systems and processes of the discharge arrangements for all people from acute general hospital and community bedded units on pathways 1, 2 and 3.

The Leeds System partners have adopted the ‘Home First’ approach and in order to achieve this significant, system-wide transformation will be required including the pooling, coordination and redistribution of existing resources to focus on safe early discharge, out of hospital assessment, improving patient outcomes and home-based rehabilitation. This level of system wide transformation needs a post holder to demonstrate senior level leadership and a skill set which includes knowledge of systems and processes, analytics, transactional and transformational change
strategies as well as personal attributes of excellent communication and presentation skills, resilience and above all ability to keep outcomes and experience at the centre of it all.

The post is a developmental one and as such the System partners expect the role to develop over time. For this reason, it is advertised initially as a 6 month temporary contract or secondment. The post will be hosted in the first instance by NHS Leeds CCG. The requirement for a considerable skill set and leadership ability is reflected in the remuneration for the post at AfC 8b or equivalent and the post holder would be expected to work 30 – 37.5 hours per week.
