The South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) provides the full range of mental health services to people from the boroughs of Croydon, Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham as well as specialist services for patients from all over the country. The Trust is committed to developing all members of staff and to providing opportunities for local people to make a contribution to mental health care. With our staff of nearly 5,000 and a turnover of £365 million, we have a leading role in devising and evaluating new treatments, both drugs and psychological interventions.

SLaM is part of the King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre, which brings together one of the world’s top research-led universities, King’s College London, and three of London’s most prestigious and highly regarded NHS Foundation Trusts – Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital and South London and Maudsley. Our partnership provides a powerful combination of complex clinical specialties that cover a wide range of physical and mental health conditions and a breadth of research expertise that spans disciplines from medicine and biomedical sciences to the social sciences and humanities.

‘Integrating our Mental & Physical Healthcare Systems’ Project

People with severe mental illness die on average 15-20 years sooner than the general population. All health and care professions have a part to play in delivering closer integration. Our staff will require the necessary skills and support to take a ‘whole person’ perspective which will require systematised access to specialist advice, guidance and support; learning and skills transfer; and the development of collaborative ‘bridging’ behaviours to improve relationships across services and organisations. The project workstreams include (i) a central team to embed a systematic approach to improving the physical health of SLaM patients; (ii) creation of a volunteer-led Health Champions service to promote healthy lifestyles and behaviours; and (iii) enhanced digital platforms to develop patient-centred records, virtual multidisciplinary consultations across KHP and primary care, and the sharing of relevant information.

Integrating Our Physical & Mental Healthcare Systems Project Manager

The post holder will provide overall project management for the ‘Integrating our Mental and Healthcare Systems’ project and its workstreams. They will support, facilitate and monitor progress of the project across all 4 SLaM sites and will work with a wide network of stakeholders (including SLaM nursing and medical leads for physical health, the King’s Health Partner Mind and Body Programme, general practice, community services, acute trusts and voluntary sector providers), in order to support successful delivery.

Applicants should have a proven track record of exceptional influencing skills and the ability to successfully navigate ambiguity and complexity to build consensus across a wider range of stakeholders.
