Did you know that while 84% of adults use the internet, just 2% report any digitally enabled transaction with the NHS?  Digital has such a lot to offer the NHS, whether that be for patients, staff or for all of us as tax payers. Digital technology continues to play a pivotal role in allowing patients and practitioners to better track, manage and improve healthcare outcomes and provide services.

Are you passionate about improving healthcare through digital means? Do you have a strong network across the NHS? Do you know the key decision makers in your organisation and how to get things done?  If this sounds like you, please read on.

We are recruiting a navigator for our Accelerator programme. Navigators act as relationship managers between SMEs and London trusts.

We look for navigators from different professional backgrounds within the NHS and at various stages in their career. You might be a consultant, a GP or a junior doctor, a matron, a manager or a commissioner.  If you are a ST4-6, CT3, SAS, GPST3/4, band 8A or equivalent you will most likely be looking for a full time secondment to broaden your experience in this exciting field.

If you are in a more senior role, you will be looking for a part time secondment to make good things in healthcare happen faster through digital, alongside your day job. Successful navigators will be particularly familiar with health organisations in Lambeth and Southwark and the member organisations of the Health Innovation Network and UCLPartners.


If you think this role might be for you, please visit the vacancy on our partner, UCLP’s, website.

The programme is uniquely positioned to provide in-depth knowledge of the NHS and wider UK health and care sector to high potential companies in London to help them refine, develop and scale their innovations. It focuses on engagement with clinicians and healthcare experts, working collaboratively to get to the root of health and care challenges and find solutions.
