System Director, is this you?

System Director x2 (Torbay x1, South Devon x1)

System Director for Nursing and Professional Practice x2 

We were one of the first places to integrate adult health and social care and the first Integrated Care Organisation. As a phase 3 integrated care system we will continue to build on our close relationships with Devon County Council, Torbay Council and CCG to develop and deliver our Care Model which enables citizens and communities to take responsibility and control of their own health and wellbeing. The Delivery Structure aligns to this approach, services are aligned to localities to support the continued focus on care delivery as close to our communities as possible. The new way of working enables individual staff and teams to take responsibility and control of their own work by operating as self-managing teams, making better decision about priorities as a result of being closer to care delivery. Support for teams will continue to be available when they need it via provision of coaching, specialist advice and assurance support. The new way of working will expedite and enable decision making at a local level to transform service at pace. It will create an agile organisation, responsive to the needs of communities that can provide sustainable support and care.

We are seeking courageous, inspirational and talented leaders capable of shaping the new organisational form and culture that will deliver the next stage of integration. The System Directors and System Directors of Nursing and Professional  Practice will join our new System Medical Directors to design and implement new ways of working across the organisation. They will collaborate across boundaries with local partners, and across Devon as part of our successful and productive STP.

We have around 500,000 face-to-face contacts with patients in their homes and communities each year and see over 78,000 people in our A&E department annually. We serve a resident population of approximately 286,000 people, plus about 100,000 visitors at any one time during the summer holiday season.  We employ approximately 6,000 staff including frontline health and social care staff, such as nurses, occupational therapists, social workers, consultants, and physiotherapists who work in your home and from a range of different premises across Torbay and South Devon such as acute hospital wards, community hospitals and clinics.

Currently the structure includes 2 systems (Torbay and South Devon) which are conterminous with local authority geography. Each team will consist of a System Director, System Director for Nursing & Professional Practice and System Medical Director. Each system comprises of a mix of specialist and community services. It is expected that the System Leadership Teams for both systems will work closely together sharing learning and best practice and that the structures and processes will evolve as the organisational form matures.

The System Leaders will work together as a team to

  • Clarify direction
  • Establish alignment
  • Garner commitment
  • Intentionally build culture to promote joy and wholeness at work
  • Ensure we work to continuously improve
