As the largest single site specialist heart and chest hospital in the UK, we, at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, have a clear vision 'to be the best cardiothoracic integrated healthcare organisation'.

We provide specialist services in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, respiratory medicine including adult cystic fibrosis and diagnostic imaging, both in the hospital and out in the community.

New and upgraded clinical areas are designed with patients and families fully involved to deliver their needs.

As part of our long term plan, we aim to form strong clinical and organisational relationships where possible. There is clear evidence that partnerships improve patient care and enhance quality and we aim to collaborate with a range of other providers and professionals with the aim to extending access and improve quality.

The Innovation Agency website contains more details about the organisation and its area of cover which includes Merseyside, South Cumbria, Lancashire and most of Cheshire.

This is an exciting time to join the Innovation Agency. The need for innovation in our health and care systems has never been greater, with the Innovation Agency playing a key role in the rapid adoption and spread of new technologies and ways of working designed to transform and improve the quality and safety of care delivery.

We have a number of new posts planned for 2021, including the Senior Programme Manager – Patient Safety (Mental Health).

This is an exciting opportunity to work in a fast-paced innovative patient safety team. The patient safety team supports local delivery of the NHS Patient Safety Strategy and the NHS Long Term plan’s golden thread of patient safety.

Our aim is to help the NHS North West Coast be one of the safest healthcare systems in the world. Our work is commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement.

We work collaboratively across the breadth of patient safety on national and local workstreams, with patients and staff from across Lancashire, South Cumbria, Cheshire and Merseyside. Our current areas of focus are:

  • Deteriorating patient

  • Medicines safety and optimisation
  • Adoption and spread of proven patient safety interventions
  • Mental Health

We encourage interested applicants to discuss this role with Andrew Cooper, Clinical Director. Please email to arrange an informal discussion: andrew.cooper@innovationagencynwc.nhs.uk

We provide specialist services in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, respiratory medicine including adult cystic fibrosis and diagnostic imaging, both in the hospital and out in the community.

We serve a catchment area of 2.8 million people, spanning Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man, and increasingly we receive referrals from outside these areas for highly specialised services such as aortics.

Heart and lung disease continue to be amongst the biggest killers in the UK and the communities we serve are marked by increased prevalence of cardiovascular disease, higher levels of heart failure, hypertension, coronary artery disease and an ageing population.

Our reputation for strong performance is important in delivering the best care for our patients and high quality clinical services. This is underpinned by a culture of research and innovation, delivered in modern estate and facilitated by technology. New and upgraded clinical areas are designed with patients and families fully involved to deliver their needs.

As part of our long term plan, we aim to form strong clinical and organisational relationships where possible. There is clear evidence that partnerships improve patient care and enhance quality and we aim to collaborate with a range of other providers and professionals with the aim to extending access and improve quality.


This post is being advertised by LHCH on behalf of the Innovation Agency, the Academic Health Science Network for the North West Coast.

Innovation Agency Senior Programme Manager – Patient Safety (Mental Health)

The Innovation Agency (IA) is one of 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) established by the NHS in England to accelerate the spread of innovations. The Innovation Agency website contains more details about the organisation and its area of cover which includes Merseyside, South Cumbria, Lancashire and most of Cheshire.

This is an exciting time to join the Innovation Agency. The need for innovation in our health and care systems has never been greater, with the Innovation Agency playing a key role in the rapid adoption and spread of new technologies and ways of working designed to transform and improve the quality and safety of care delivery.

We have a number of new posts planned for 2021, including the Senior Programme Manager – Patient Safety (Mental Health).

This is an exciting opportunity to work in a fast-paced innovative patient safety team. The patient safety team supports local delivery of the NHS Patient Safety Strategy and the NHS Long Term plan’s golden thread of patient safety.

Our aim is to help the NHS North West Coast be one of the safest healthcare systems in the world. Our work is commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement.

We work collaboratively across the breadth of patient safety on national and local workstreams, with patients and staff from across Lancashire, South Cumbria, Cheshire and Merseyside. Our current areas of focus are:
