A customer and delivery focused joint Chief Information Officer (CIO) is needed to shape and deliver the future IT and Clinical Systems landscapes across these two large, dynamic and highly visible NHS Trusts. The Chief Information Officer (CIO) will be the senior leader responsible for the overall delivery of digital and informatics capabilities across London North West University and Hillingdon Hospitals Trusts. Combined, the trusts serve the needs of over 1.5 million patients a year and has a workforce of close to 15,000 people.
We have made great strides in beginning our move towards digital maturity recently, but we are ambitious to do more. The trusts are aiming to be fully paperless and to incorporate the rich use data, both in the way we run the organisations and directly in the way patients are treated. To this end, the trusts are embarking on an ambitious Cerner Electronic Patient Record (EPR) programme over the next few years. We now require a new joint CIO to deliver this vision and to lead on the digital transformation to meet the ambitions of both trusts and to ensure delivery of high quality and responsive digital services to the patients of Brent, Ealing, Harrow and Hillingdon.
Working closely with colleagues in clinical information, you will hold responsibility for IT and Digital across both Trusts, plus the ongoing delivery and adoption of technology enabled business change. The CIO will drive senior stakeholder engagement, both within the Trust and across the local and national health economies. You will also progressively lead an IT team of close to 300 people, plus manage a multi-million-pound annual budget.
We are committed to continuously improving outcomes for patients, tackling health inequalities and delivering the best value for money for the taxpayer. The CIO will play a key role in progressing our ambitious digital roadmap in ensuring digital inclusion and patient access to the local patient population.
