We constantly aim to be innovative and at the leading edge of delivering ICT that benefits our patients and supports our staff in their work. We are committed to using technology to support the improvement of the various objectives of the organisation, such as supporting new ways of delivering care at either our hospitals, or to facilitate collaborative working with our Health Partners or the wider Community. The ICT innovations and projects helping us to achieve this include links between key corporate systems to enable sharing of information, a replacement EPR system, Electronic Document Management system, increasing integration with our Partners and working toward a Local Unified Care record.
This is a permanent position.
We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated Project Manager, with experience of successful implementation through the project lifecycle. We have some very interesting projects such as a collaboration with the UK first Artificial Intelligence for Imaging centre in our portfolio.
You will engage with a broad spectrum of users across the Trust and with external agencies, and work as part of the Project Management Team, liaising closely with other teams in the ICT department, developing and maintaining key corporate systems as well as implementing innovations and delivering ICT solutions that translate into tangible clinical benefit for patients.
Significant Project Management experience, application of PRINCE 2 (or equivalent methodology), assertiveness, ability to work with senior staff members, strong influencing skills, excellent communication skills in both written and oral media and a demonstrable record of successful implementation to time and budget are essentials for the role.
You will have a comprehensive understanding of the issues challenging large Acute Trusts in implementing ICT solutions.
