Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) and the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UHSM) will join together to create a new Foundation Trust in October 2017 which will be named Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT); subject to required approvals. Following this, the plan is for North Manchester General Hospital (which is currently part of The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust) to join the new organisation around 12-18 months later.

As a result of this plan, it’s such an extremely exciting and challenging period in the delivery of health and social care in Greater Manchester and one that provides a wealth of opportunity. Our new organisation will provide a single hospital service across the city of Manchester and in 12- 18 months will also include the services currently provided by North Manchester General Hospital. These changes will make a real difference to the health outcomes and quality of life for the people of Manchester.

You will be an important member of the Research and Innovation Division, taking a lead responsibility for innovation adoption activity across CMFT.

You will develop, implement and promote a Trust-wide approach to deliver innovations that are aligned to the needs of the Trust and its Divisions; this involves working with front line clinical staff and potential innovation partners, including industry, to facilitate the rapid adoption of relevant innovation into clinical practice. This service may be spread across Manchester over time taking into account the proposal for a single hospital service.

You will improve technology pull-through by facilitating and managing innovation adoption projects through an effective innovation adoption management process which includes horizon scanning scouting, triaging opportunities, project managing of expert assessment, support, data collection, information gathering and signposting.The post-holder will have a clinical/scientific degree at masters level or equivalent demonstrable experience in innovation and improvement work. Evidence of continuing professional development

You will ensure alignment with Health Innovation Manchester objectives and the 2016 Accelerated Access Review Report and will also work with the Director of IP and Business Partnerships to identify opportunities to protect and exploit CMFT intellectual property.

PLEASE NOTE: Interviews are expected to take place immediately after the closing date. We are keen to recruit for this role as soon as possible and are hopeful for an October starting date.
