We are one of the busiest university teaching hospital trusts in North West England. We manage three hospitals based on two sites: the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and Broadgreen Hospital.  Our hospitals have often been at the forefront of medical breakthroughs during our long history at the heart of the city.

In under a year we will be opening a new state of the art hospital. The new hospital will provide every patient with a single bedroom with en-suite facilities. We believe that modern healthcare is as much about privacy, comfort and dignity as it is about pioneering treatments and cutting-edge technology.

The RLH IT PMO Department are looking for an experienced IT Programme Manager on a 2 year fixed term basis to lead and deliver a Digital Pathology solution for the Cheshire and Merseyside Cancer Alliance which spans 7 laboratories, across the North West. The Royal Liverpool Hospital has successfully won the bid to host this new technological solution that will transform and improve the Pathology service for the region.

The Cheshire and Merseyside (C&M) STP is made up of local planning footprints called Local Delivery Systems (LDSs) spanning Clinical Commissioning Groups, Local Authorities and providers within the locality.

This bid represents a significant opportunity to develop a new diagnostic model. This will deliver sustainable benefits and act as a platform for cost effective approaches to diagnostics that can be extended to other tumour groups and diseases for the 2.6m population.

The main objectives of the project and advantages to patients in Merseyside and Cheshire of implementing this digital pathology proof of concept are:

• Equity of access for all patients to the specialist support and expertise available in laboratories across the Network
• Available peer support for pathologists to facilitate early diagnosis
• Develop an efficient process for the referral and discussion of patients at multidisciplinary meetings
• Create a platform for implementing advances in diagnostic technology in the future
• Create a platform for distributing the ‘routine’ workload of cellular pathology laboratories between centres, mitigating imbalances between workload and capacity in individual laboratories that are currently managed by employing locums or outsourcing.

Royal Liverpool have just been awarded a place on the national Global Digital Exemplar scheme which means the Trust has committed to promoting digital excellence and delivering a world class digital healthcare. In conjunction with the current development of a brand new state of the art hospital being built at the back of the current site, it’s a really exciting time to be part of the RLH team.

Our ideal candidates will have excellent interpersonal skills and will visibly demonstrate their drive and enthusiasm to gain a more detailed understanding of the business operating environment and clinical landscape.

Individuals will be required to travel as part of their role, to other NHS sites as part of the PMO service that we deliver, the Cheshire and Merseyside Cancer Alliance spans across 7 laboratories throughout the North west.

Interviews will be held w/c 12th March 2018

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years.
