CHI at Crumlin is seeking to appoint a programme Manager to deliver on the All Island Congenital Heart Disease programme.  The programme is based in Crumlin and will work closely with our colleagues in Clarke Clinic in Belfast. 

The Programme Manager will work closely with clinical, nursing and departmental leads to develop plans, assist in process and data performance analysis, log and manage issues and risks, advise on stakeholder and communications management and report on the status of the programme.  The Programme Manager will also provide advice and support towards improvements in patient processes, flow and scheduling in the interests of maximising efficiencies and return on investment.

The Programme Manager will have responsibility for ensuring that capital and equipping elements of the Programme are delivered and on time, and will work with Human Resources to plan recruitment into expanded services.

The Programme has expanded to include Hospitals in Ireland, North and South, through the provision of Paediatricians with Expertise (PEC) in Cardiology and Outreach models and the Programme Manager will have responsibility for delivering this network.  A number of Network Manager roles are being developed as part of CHI and it is expected that the Programme Manager will liaise with these managers as appropriate.
