Manchester Macmillan citywide Community Supportive and Palliative Care Programme

Band 8a Community Service Manager - South Manchester Locality

We are Manchester Local Care Organisation - an exciting, new public sector organisation that is bringing together NHS community health services and social care services in the city. We’re driven by the aim of improving the health of local people in Manchester by working across organisational boundaries. The first health and social care staff have been deployed to us from April 2018 and are now starting to work in new ways across the city. Our teams work as one in the neighbourhoods they serve – delivering and designing services in partnership with local people. We also provide key services that work across wider localities and city-wide. We believe that our pioneering approach will make a massive difference to the health of people in our city and we are looking for you to join our team and help us do this.

An exciting opportunity has arisen within the south locality for a service manager for our multidisciplinary Macmillan team, implementing and managing the locality hub as part of the Manchester Macmillan Supportive and Palliative Care Programme. The programme will roll out the successful North Manchester Macmillan Model and build upon this to develop our citywide approach to the delivery of supportive and palliative care. This post will be of interest to you if you are an experienced, highly motivated community health care professional with excellent clinical, leadership, managerial and communication skills who is committed to developing high quality palliative care outside hospital and working collaboratively across boundaries. The post holder will provide operational management for the Macmillan teams based within the localities & ensure that systems are in place to assure the delivery of safe, high quality community based palliative and supportive care. Working closely with colleagues across the city there will be opportunities to influence the future of palliative care strategy, policy development and care pathways in line with the integration agenda and to impact positively upon patients’ and carers’ experience.
