The North Central and East London Cancer Alliance (NCELCA) is the integrated cancer system for the North Central and East London. It is hosted by UCLH.
In 2017, the STP for north east London and East London ,through the Cancer Alliance, bid successfully for funding from the national Cancer Transformation Fund (CTF) to develop an Early Diagnosis Centre (EDC). The EDC seeks to provide high quality diagnostics for the local population - recognising the need for increased capacity in this part of London.
The EDCis based at Mile Hospital, part of Barts Health NHS Trust. Following a phase of rigorous feasibility and validation work, the business case for the EDC was approved by the BH Executive Board in September 2019. Work is now under way to build, equip and staff the EDC facility, and prepare it for routine operation in May 2020.
NCELCA is seeking to recruit a skilled and experienced project manager to assist with ongoing work to plan and operationalise the EDC's ICT provision. The post-holder will manage one or more projects within the ICT work-stream connected to the NEL EDC programme. Their main responsibilities will include:
- Reviewing existing work such as that conducted by the consultancy, Prederi and the operational flow maps produced by Trust clinicians; and engaging stakeholders from within Barts Health NHS Trust and its EDC partner trusts as appropriate, to confirm the components of the fundamental 'stage one' ICT architecture that will be necessary to support the launch of the EDC in May 2020.
- Contributing to scoping discussions and options appraisals about specific pieces of ICT provision needed for the EDC, such as the surveillance database, which is required to enable the identification, administrative management, and recall of patients.
- Formulating an ICT implementation plan that has the support of key stakeholders, and developing other project documentation as necessary.
- Delivering the ICT implementation plan so that the EDC has a robust, functioning ICT infrastructure in place at launch, with the support of the EDC's partners and stakeholders.
