Job Description

THE ROLE

My client is the leading provider of end of life care in the UK. The impact of their existing services on people's experience at end of life is significant. During 2019/20, they helped more than 60,000 people with their services, including hospices, nursing services, helper and companion services, and information and support. However, they're currently only reaching 10% of people at the end of life in the UK and the need for their work has never been greater: every 5 minutes someone in the UK dies without getting the care and support they need. They need to build on their excellent services and change the way they work to strengthen their reach and impact and ensure everyone has the best possible experience at the end of life. They are currently undergoing an extensive transformation which will enable them to support many more people across the UK and beyond through death, dying and bereavement.

They have recently made a significant investment in sector-proven software packages which will enable a step change in the way in which they manage and deliver their front-line services.

We are currently recruiting for a Local Systems Coordinator for our client's hospice based in Hampstead. This will be a hybrid working role. As a Local Systems Coordinator, you will be responsible for ensuring your region maintains an acceptable level of data quality within the electronic patient record systems.

In collaboration with your local head of operations and the national service transformation team, you will be crucial in helping your team achieve the level of data accuracy required to ensure we demonstrate to our commissioners the great care we provide for our patients.
