Organization Description:

South West London Health and Care Partnership is one of 5 Health and Care Partnerships in London working across a range of NHS and social care organizations to transform care for our residents.  We have a population of 1.6M residents in South West London with a wide ranging demographic.  The partnership comprises over 15 different organizations including general acute hospitals, specialist hospitals, commissioners and local authorities as well as a large number of voluntary sector providers.

In 17/18 three of our leaders attended the strategic leadership course which was facilitated by Yale; this has resulted in the highly regarded programme to reduce self harm in children in South West London.  The Clinical Senate in South West London has now identified a number of priority programs for delivery in 19/20 where we will deliver change at scale and we will utilize the change methodology from the strategic leadership course, and piloted on our self harm project, more widely.

Project Background:

There is a South West London work programme focusing on improving End of Life Care.  The reason that we are focusing on this is because we know that there more people dying than have a personalized care plan and therefore some people are at risk of having unnecessary hospital admissions at the end of life.  We also know that clinicians see the potential to improve the coordination of care and to share information about patients so that patients quality of care at the end of their life is optimized. The key areas are:

  • To support identification of those in the last year of life
  • Personalization of care for those in the last year of life; including the development of advanced care plans expressing end of life care wishes which are shared on a digital platform called “Co-ordinate My Care”; supporting the development of initiatives to better co-ordinate care across the systems
  • Harnessing community assets to enhance community support for people who are at the end of their life
  • Creating a shared data set for EOLC metrics across agencies

Description of Proposed Activities:

The post holder would provide support to the projects under these key areas and would have lead responsibilities.  It is likely that the focus of the post holder will be to develop a business case for a pilot project for compassionate communities building on work already in place in South West London and drawing on national and international best practice.

We are holding a clinical conference on 30 April 2019 to ratify the South West London priorities for End of Life Care and therefore the proposed activities may be refined following this prioritization.

Key Responsibilities:

  1. Establish the project plan and deliverables and business case
  2. To engage with the key stakeholders - hospices, primary care, acute and community services, local authorities and other voluntary sector community and patient engagement groups 
  3. To undertake tasks required to achieve the deliverables and start implementation of the pilot

There will be direct supervision with a named manager during the period of the assignment. 

Reporting or Deliverable Requirements

  • Development of a project plan with milestones
  • Development of business case to support pilot
  • Reporting to South West London-wide programme network board

Required Skills:

  • Interpersonal skills – working closely with stakeholders from a range of organizations sometimes with competing priorities
  • Written skills – able to condense information and present it appropriately for stakeholders
  • Analytical skills to develop cost benefit analysis
  • Research skills to identify best practice

Student Preference:  Graduate students

Out-of-pocket expense support for student:  To be confirmed and contingent upon successful application of YSPH travel fund.
