Funded Posts – Shropshire Care Closer to Home Phase 3

Expressions of interest are being sought by the CCG from GP colleagues for a number of funded short term positions to support the design work for Phase 3 of Shropshire Care Closer to Home.

These roles will represent their locality and help to shape and design the first phase of the models, which include the three key elements of Hospital at Home, Step-up Beds and a Rapid Response Service.

The roles also include acting as an interface between the programme of work and respective locality GP colleagues, to keep everyone informed and engaged as much as possible. There will be the need to provide updates to the localities as well as widespread engagement with member practices, other stakeholders, and providers including Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH), West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (WMAS), and the Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust (Shropcom).

These short term funded post will require six full days of commitment between December 2018 and April 2019, with specific dates and timings to be agreed. It is anticipated the six days of programme commitment would be used in the following ways:

  • Attend a Programme Working Group meeting where a decision is made on the agreed longlist of first draft possible Phase 3 model options (½ day)
