Are you an experienced leader in health and social care with a comprehensive knowledge of the Mental Capacity Act and looking for a new and exciting role?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’, then we would like to hear from you. The Personal Health Commissioning team are seeking to employ a full time Team Leader in our Central Services team.

We are seeking a motivated and experienced registered health or social care professional to work as an Operational Team Leader in the Central Services team. This is a new post and the post holder will have responsibility for managing the workflow required of the operational team under the Mental Capacity Act, facilitating the making of applications to the Court of Protection and providing statements, working closely with partner organisations and our legal team when required. You will have an active role as we prepare for the implementation of Liberty Protection Safeguards across the service.

The Personal Health Commissioning (PHC) service is responsible for implementing the National Framework for NHS Continuing Healthcare including Fast track and NHS-funded Nursing Care (CHC) and Children and Young Peoples Continuing Care (CYPCC), managing the commissioning of care and support for those eligible for CHC and CYPCC and so the work will span all age groups with a range of health conditions.

Working collaboratively with other team leaders and senior management in PHC, you will ensure our work is in line with national guidance and legal frameworks, to support good performance and achievement of national and local standards. You will have a comprehensive understanding of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the 2019 amendment, as well as working knowledge of the National Framework for Continuing Healthcare and Continuing care and Children and Young Peoples Continuing Care and the Care Act 2014.

You will have a strong person centred focus and excellent communication and problem-solving skills. You will be able to work methodically, maintaining a tracker of applications in progress and made to the Court. You will build collaborative relationships with stakeholder organisations and be able to establish effective ways of working across the health and social care system. You will be able to prioritise your workload and be able to work in an often fast paced environment. The successful candidate will be able to assist and support with the facilitation of training of the team to ensure skills and knowledge are up to date and that quality applications are submitted to the Court.

The successful candidate will need to be resilient, have attention to detail and a positive approach who promotes a positive and supportive environment, empowering the learning and development of the team and promoting wellbeing within the staff group.

This is a great opportunity to join the NHS Dorset CCG as part of the Personal Health Commissioning Management team as it continues its service transformation. 

The PHC team are a supportive team with a wealth of knowledge, skills and expertise enhancing a robust peer development programme. Strong leadership encourages personal growth, learning and development and there are opportunities for learning and further study. We are committed to the ongoing learning and development of our team and provide opportunities in line with the CHC Competency Framework. In addition the CCG has a strong focus on the wellbeing of its staff and is able to offer regular 1-1’s, both formal and informal wellbeing activities and an employee assistance programme.

Due to the nature of the role, there may be a requirement to travel and a full driving licence is essential and will also be the subject of an Enhanced DBS check. In addition there will be a need for consideration of Covid vaccination status as part of the Occupational Health assessment.

Our Mission

Using our clinical understanding, we strive to lead continuous improvements to health and care services in Dorset. Our key mission is to support people in Dorset to lead healthier lives, for longer.

This mission sets out our ultimate purpose. It defines what we must aim to achieve every day, through every decision and every interaction we have as an organisation. It also incorporates our vision statement. Our mission statement is explained as follows:

  • 'Supporting people' reflects our role of commissioning services for those who fall ill and in preventing illness in the first place. It also recognises the need for us to support people to manage their own health and to work with them to do this successfully.
  • We have a duty of care for all people while they are 'in Dorset' - not just Dorset residents.
  • 'Healthier lives' is the ultimate outcome we are aiming for. It reflects a need to prevent illness (e.g. through education), as well as recognising the need to provide timely services for everyone.

As a clinical commissioning group we have a responsibility as leaders within the health economy. Our unique position as clinicians also allows us to view things differently.

We already have an excellent health service in Dorset but, excellent services can still, and must, be improved to reflect a continually changing economy and society. By using our clinical understanding and different perspective we can drive continuous improvements, not just in health care but across all services within Dorset.
