ELFT has been named one of the HSJ Top 10 best places to work in healthcare, HSJ Provider Trust of the Year and graded as Outstanding by our regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in 2016. We believe that staff who feel valued by the Trust and are truly engaged in the organisation deliver better outcomes for our patients.

We have set ourselves the mission of providing the highest quality mental health and community care in England, and have embarked on an ambitious Quality Improvement Programme to transform the culture of the Trust to one of continuous improvement, delivered through participation of all staff and with service users, carers and families at the heart of our efforts to improve.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic Clinical Service Manager for The Newham Learning Disability Community Health Team.  This Team is multi-disciplinary and committed to facilitation and liaison with local health and social care services in order that people with learning disability can access mainstream services where possible and that their experience and outcomes are good. Additionally the Team provides specialist input where this is required. The Team assesses and case manages those who are entitled to full health funding and is working towards the implementation of personal health budgets.

The successful candidate will lead the management  team, coordinating its specialist and strategic health facilitation roles, and will be expected to manage budgets and balance clinical and operational demands with future planning developments and management of associated change.

If you are a dedicated and forward thinking Clinical Service manager we would be delighted to hear from you.  Any Queries can be answered by Helen Green, Deputy Director of Newham Community Services at;  Helen.Green@elft.nhs.uk
