Hackney is one of Britain’s most exciting and fastest-changing boroughs. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. The challenges that have arisen over the last two years have intensified the need for action and we are determined to rebuild Hackney for, and with, our diverse communities.  

NHS North East London Integrated Care Board, the London Borough of Hackney, and the City of London Corporation are working towards a place-based integrated model for the planning and delivery of health, social care and well-being services to improve outcomes for our residents and patients. This means providers and commissioners working together with clinicians/practitioners and patients/residents in new ways around a population-based budget for services in City and Hackney. This new model for the system is based on the integrated care systems and partnerships being implemented across the country and signposted nationally as the key model for future health and care services. Our integrated commissioning and care structure has been in place since April 2017 making decisions jointly on how to make best use of the overall budgets for health and social care in Hackney and the City.  This is an exciting programme of work which is transforming the way services are commissioned and provided involving co-production and co-design to improve services and outcomes for residents.

We are looking to recruit a Childhood Immunisations Programme Manager to work as part of the Children, Young people, Maternity and Families (CYPMF) Integrated Commissioning Team. 

The Childhood Immunisation Programme Manager will play a vital role in leading on the development and delivery of a co-produced Childhood Immunisation strategy with the overall aim of increasing childhood immunisation uptake levels across City and Hackney. 

The Childhood Immunisation Programme Manager will work as a collaborative member of the NEL Health and Care Partnership Team, working closely with Primary Care and via the Primary Care Networks(PCNs), Public Health and NHSE to support practices in improvement in uptake of Childhood Immunisations. The post holder will report to the Children, Young People, Maternity and Families Programme Manager and the Children and Young People’s Strategic Lead for City and Hackney Integrated Care Partnership and North East London Health and Care Partnership.

To programme manage the implementation of the City and Hackney Childhood Immunisation programme, including overseeing any potential outbreak immunisation response programmes, meeting regularly with the PCN groupings and hospital hubs to ensure the required arrangements are in place to ensure the consistent delivery of the programme.

To lead on the coordination of the reporting arrangements on behalf of the NEL ICB for the programme.

To build highly effective relationships with PCNs, General Practices, voluntary sector partners, and other key stakeholders, providing an excellent level of communication overall. This will require delivering high level information relating to Child immunisation programmes to PCN leads. 

To work closely with practices to embed improvement structures, building on the advice and tools of the Clinical Effectiveness Group.

Engage and influence system-wide senior partners across City and Hackney to embed and effect sustained improvement in Childhood Immunisation Programmes. Working across the system to maximise opportunities for joint working and sharing of good practice across the childhood and school-age immunisation programme.

To ensure the NEL ICB is appropriately assured of the effective management and delivery of the Childhood Immunisations across Primary Care. This will require the analysis,  interpretation and presentation of complex data and the recommendation of courses of action.

To act as the City and Hackney operational lead in monitoring call and recall systems and performance management against programme priorities with and across City and Hackney practices.

To work closely with commissioning and operational leads across NEL ICB in order to share best practice in child immunisation uptake improvement. 

Work with colleagues across the system to integrate learning and expertise gained from the delivery of the Covid-19 Children’s Vaccination programme. 


Ensuring that the Child Immunisation Programme strategy is culturally responsive and meets the needs of the diverse communities and populations within City and Hackney.
