Fixed Term for 12 months 

The role of our organisation is to contract a wide range of health care services which fulfil the varying needs of those in our community.

NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group (NHS Kernow) is focusing on the requirements of the entire population in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, the aim being to reduce the demand on over-stretched health care services. By being proactive and encouraging and supporting positive health and wellbeing initiatives, we hope to move away from a reactive health care model, with an emphasis being on prevention. This will help to ensure that we can provide the highest quality and safest health and care services, to those who need it most.

We are passionate about making a difference to people’s lives, and understanding their needs. With help from volunteers in our local communities, we can empower individuals, giving them a greater choice about when, where, and how they access health services. With feedback from service users, and the knowledge and experience of our clinical experts, NHS Kernow will continue to meet, and strive to exceed national standards and targets.

About the role:

You will be a high-quality communicator and will have excellent interpersonal skills. You will create and maintain good, professional relationships with patients and their carers, care homes, the local authority, NHS colleagues, and other individuals involved in the Continuing Healthcare (CHC), Personal Health Budget and Individual Funding processes. You will have a genuine interest in healthcare. You will be able to demonstrate the ability to remain calm, to handle emotive, complicated and sensitive issues. You will need to show tact and diplomacy, good workload management and be able to negotiate with confidence. Previous experience/knowledge of government legislation relating to NHS continuing healthcare, personal health budgets and contract processing are desirable, although not essential as training will be given.

About you: The successful applicant will live our values through their everyday behaviours and interactions. You will believe in being honest to enable your colleagues and our providers to make the best decisions and choices for the benefit of people’s health and wellbeing. You will encourage and listen to other people’s ideas and suggestions with an enquiring and positive mind; expecting to hear feedback and taking it in the spirit of learning and improving. You will be an ambassador for NHS Kernow, promoting the importance of improving people’s health and well-being and making sure services are safe and effective and delivered in ways that improve people’s experiences and outcomes. Our vision is of a future where more people are supported to live the lives they want in their communities, with care and support services provided around the needs of people that are safe and sustainable for future generations. We achieve this with compassion, imagination and by building effective relationships and working together.
