Serving a population of almost 150,000 in the heart of the North East, South Tyneside Council prides itself on providing excellent and efficient services to its residents.

Adults and Integrated Care are keen to support the development of new digital and ICT solutions which will improve outcomes for the people of South Tyneside and help them to Live Better Lives.

The Health Information Exchange (HIE) is part of the wider project to deliver the Great North Care Record (GNCR). The vision of the GNCR is that information held within the region’s hospitals, mental health services, social care, GPs and community services and ambulance services will be available on a 24 hour basis to appropriate authorised health and care professionals to support direct care to an individual.

The Council is committed to improving information sharing arrangements to support more integrated ways of working. The Council sees the HIE project as an enabler and opportunity to better share information and ultimately deliver a more cohesive service to the person.

This newly created one year fixed term post is to manage a range of Digital and ICT Projects within the Council including the Health Information Exchange Project from planning stage, through to implementation. This will include identifying and monitoring project deliverables, liaising with all stakeholders within the health and social care economy to identify and unblock any issues, working with services to improve and resolve data quality issues and ensure the service is compliant with information governance requirements.

If you are enthusiastic and committed to delivering change and improvement, keen to work with stakeholders to support better ways of working and willing to challenge and streamline processes then we would love to hear from you.
