The Department of Health and NHS England have opportunities for placement students to work for 9 to 12 months in our analytical teams.
In NHS England and the Department of Health analysts play an instrumental part in tackling some of the nation’s most challenging and high profile health problems.
Our analytical teams cover a broad range of remits from dealing with resource allocation, workforce planning, forecasting, performance measurement, and strategic planning. Projects include:
- developing a model to estimate the number of people who will develop swine flu in England, and the knock on effects on the health service
- informing impact assessments to provide balanced and objective views of the costs and benefits of policies to redesign A&E services
- using forecasting techniques to estimate the regional uptake of government services to inform the deployment of resources across the country.
Applications for student placements are invited for positions in our London and Leeds offices, starting in summer 2015. There may also be opportunities in the NHS England regional offices in Birmingham, Leicester, Cambridge and Reading.
The deadline for applications is Monday 3rd November 2014.
