At University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) our success starts with you.

We want you to come to UCLH and stay at UCLH because our success starts with you. All of our staff have been involved in developing our values. We believe that they make UCLH a better place for patients and staff alike.

This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the largest and most successful Foundation Trusts in the UK with an international reputation and a tradition of innovation.

Many of our services operate from new or newly refurbished facilities including the University College Hospital Macmillan Cancer Centre which opened in 2012. So, why join UCLH…?

  • We have a reputation as a centre of clinical excellence
  • Our hospitals are in great central London locations
  • We have new facilities and state-of-the-art medical technology
  • We have a wide range of career opportunities

Based in the busy West End of London, we have a lively and vibrant working atmosphere, with quick and easy transport links to all our sites. Our size and resources enable us to offer a range of attractive benefits as well as unparalleled education and development opportunities for staff at all levels. This includes an extensive portfolio of academic and clinical courses and programmes ranging from ongoing personal development through to clinical excellence and leadership skills. UCLH prides itself on its investment in staff both in terms of developing career skills but also its commitment to staff health and wellbeing.

Patients are at the centre of everything we do. An Electronic Health Record System (EHRS) will help to ensure that we continue to get better at delivering services and treatment plans designed around patient needs.
Our vision is to create a digitally enabled organisation that supports the delivery of efficient and effective patient care, achieved through easy-to-use systems that provide staff and patients with access to the right information, in the right place, at the right time.

You will be responsible for leading and managing the delivery of the EHRS Interfaces Project Team and associated application deliverables to support the implementation. You will manage a small team of six EHRS system interface analysts responsible for delivering the configuration and build of these specialist interfaces using best practice interfacing standards and protocols. You will also manage the application testing, working with the testing manager and his/her team, prior to EHRS and its interfaces going live to ensure that the interfaces work as expected against HL7 and other healthcare standards.
The successful candidate must be able to provide strong leadership, have a high level of communication skills, use a flexible approach and be able to work under pressure.
You will work in collaboration with Epic (our EHRS provider) along with other partner NHS and US organisations and Atos, our outsources IT services and Digital Transformation Partner in order to build in their learning and experience to enable successful delivery.

You need to have considerable previous experience of interface development, design and architecture using HL7 in a healthcare setting. Our EHRS provider Epic will train you specifically on their ‘Bridges’ interface module both in the US and the UK.
If successful, you will be offered this exciting role as a NHS secondment on your current NHS terms and conditions (or as a new fixed term NHS contract). You will receive your annual increments in line with agenda for change.
Roles are full time but part time work will be considered in exceptional circumstances (no less than 50%) and arrangements will be made to ensure clinical staff can maintain their professional registration.
