National Director: Patient Insight

Thank you for your interest in the post of National Director: Patient Insight.

Establishing the NHS Commissioning Board (NHS CB) gives us a great opportunity to develop a brand new organisation that has the culture, style and leadership to truly improve outcomes for our patients.  In Developing the NHS Commissioning Board which was published last year, David Nicholson set out his vision for the operation and design of the NHS CB, but achieving that vision and improving outcomes for our patients will depend on those people who join the NHS CB team.

The post of National Director: Patient Insight is a vital role in achieving the Board’s vision.  You will need to use sophisticated information on patients’ views and experiences to really understand their needs and help us shape services in response. This will be a key test for the success of the Board in the new system.
