Strategic Programme Lead

Lancashire and South Cumbria Hospice Together is a newly established collaborative of hospice providers covering the region.

Our mission is to ensure that the population of Lancashire and South Cumbria gets the very best palliative and end of life Hospice Care and that together we exemplify what the very best hospice care is, by collaborating to shape the future, progressing with purpose and achieving together.

Change is the only constant in the provision of health and complementary care services, which means that we need to maintain a strong strategic overview of current developments taking place as result of public policy and funding.

We also need to have the vision that enables us to see beyond the horizon and it is this that is one of the fundamental drivers for the establishment of the new role of Strategic Programme Lead.

The role offers you the scope to make a major contribution to evolution of palliative and end-of-life care in close partnership with our colleagues in the NHS and alongside other partners in both the voluntary and private sectors.

The purpose of the Strategic Programme Lead is defined by the objectives that we have set ourselves, which include influencing future commissioning, developing impact measures, exceeding national standards for quality, reducing duplication and to enable hospices survive and thrive, whilst maintaining our identity, independence and freedom to innovate.

The region covered by the members of the collaborative are rich in diversity and we want to be able to reflect that in the pattern of provision provided. We are committed to tackling inequality of access to palliative and end-of-life care.
