Bexley Health and Care Partners Clinical and Care Professional Leads

Bexley Local Care Partnership vision is for services to be developed with the person at the centre, coordinated and tailored to the needs and preferences of the individual, their carers and family.

Over the next year, we are focusing our efforts as a partnership on:

  • Supporting a safe and sustainable system recovery for all health and care services and settings following COVID-19
  • Preparing for, and responding to, any potential spikes or a further wave of COVID-19
  • Addressing the health, economic, social and racial inequalities that have been brought to the forefront by COVID-19
  • Transforming the health and care system so that it is fit for the future, delivers compassionate and joined up care, addresses inequalities and better meets the needs of our diverse communities.

To support this, we are investing in the recruitment and development of clinical and care professional leaders (i.e. people working within health, care and our voluntary and community sector) to develop strong multi-disciplinary leadership that supports us to make a difference and improve outcomes for our residents.

We are looking for health and care professionals with the energy, ability and enthusiasm to drive improvements in care across organisational boundaries, and tackle inequalities in our population through closer collaboration.

As a collective, we will want to see a leadership cohort that is diverse in their experience, knowledge and background, and reflective of the diversity of the communities we serve. It is not essential that you have previous experience in a leadership role. We will provide development and peer support and learning through experience.

If this sounds like you and would like to find out more then please contact Sarah Birch (sarah.birch2@nhs.net) or Robert Shaw (Robert.Shaw6@nhs.net) to arrange a confidential discussion.

These roles are part-time, typically ½ a day to 3 days per week, dependent upon applicants availability and the type of clinician/care professional applying. These roles can be held alongside existing roles and flexible contractual models, with backfill cover will support individuals to be released from their current clinical/ care duties to take on these leadership positions. All organisations within the Bexley Local Care Partnership are supportive of encouraging and supporting their staff to be released for to take on these opportunities and would encourage applicants to speak with their line managers on the best way to achieve this.
