NHS England was established on 1 April 2013 (as the National Health Service Commissioning Board ) to bring together for the first time 6000 people nationally from 162 previous employing organisations. NHS England provides one single operating model for the NHS in England, overseeing Clinical Commissioning Groups and its own commissioning of over £100bn of tax payer’s money. NHS England established its Legal Team in January 2015. The day to day legal work at NHS England is highly diverse e.g. contractual management of primary care providers’ contracts, individuals rights to provide medical services to NHS England, offender health, Genomic Futures strategy, and transforming the NHS in accordance with the Five Year Forward View.The team has a very broad ranging workload, covering all areas of NHS England’s business and operations. The team is often required to deliver urgent advice on complex issues to various internal clients in the organisation, including National Directors, policy teams and operational teams and does also get involved in responding to Parliamentary Questions, media and associated responses. In order to deliver appropriate advice, the team must understand both the legal and political context and be able to discretely advise on what are, at times, sensitive and high risk issues. Requests for legal advice and support are managed through a central inbox, monitored and managed by the legal team, with a significant amount of legal work being outsourced to external law firms, through framework arrangements. The team continues to manage and monitor matters which are outsourced to ensure that these are conducted cost effectively; to seek to ensure a consistent approach; and that legal work undertaken externally accords with the organisation’s strategic aims and the applicable legislative framework.Whilst the legal team members specialise in different areas, the demands of the organisation are such that flexibility is required to ensure that all work is appropriately picked up and managed.This advert closes on Thursday 9 Nov 2017 View full job description
