Pricing Policy Manager – Development

London Waterloo
As Pricing Development Manager, you will be part of a small team developing and implementing the long-term strategic vision for payment for NHS services in collaboration with NHS England.
NHS Improvement is responsible for overseeing foundation trusts, NHS trusts and independent providers. We offer the support these providers need to give patients consistently safe, high quality, compassionate care within local health systems that are financially sustainable. By holding providers to account and, where necessary, intervening, we help the NHS to meet its short-term challenges and secure its future. One of NHS Improvement’s key regulatory levers for achieving this objective is pricing. 
NHS Improvement is the operational name for the organisation that brings together Monitor, NHS Trust Development Authority, Patient Safety, the National Reporting and Learning System, the Advancing Change Team and the Intensive Support Teams.
The Pricing Team is responsible for ensuring the NHS payment system promotes economic, efficient and effective services that deliver good quality care to meet patients’ needs today and tomorrow.
The Pricing Development Team’s focus is on delivering the long-term pricing strategy for NHS-funded services. Our work is broad across all types of payment and areas of care and, crucially, includes designing new payment models to facilitate delivery of new models of care. 
The new care models programme is a key element of the NHS Five Year Forward View , which was launched in October 2014. The Forward View is a partnership between NHS England, the Care Quality Commission, Health Education England, NHS Improvement, Public Health England and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.
50 vanguard sites are now leading on the development of the new care models which will act as blueprints for the NHS moving forward and an inspiration to the rest of the health and care system. There are five types of vanguards which focus on improving the care provided to millions of people across the country. This includes connecting up GP, hospital, community and mental health services. They will also join up the often confusing array of A&E, GP out of hours, minor injuries clinics, ambulance services and 111 so that patients know where they can get urgent help easily and effectively, seven days a week. In addition, the vanguards will help to improve the working lives of thousands of doctors, nurses, midwives and other staff who work in the NHS and care services.
Job Purpose:
The Pricing Development Manager will be part of a small team developing and implementing the long-term strategic vision for payment for NHS services in collaboration with NHS England. The role provides an exciting opportunity to influence the direction of travel of NHS payment reform, including to support the vanguards and eventually the wider sector to make the changes they want to make effectively and at pace. This will involve direct liaison with commissioner and provider organisations that have volunteered as development and test partners.
The Pricing Development Manager will design and ensure delivery of research, development and evaluation projects to inform health care payment approaches; and identify and test payment options that have the potential to promote economic, efficient and effective health services.
This role is responsible for the management of analysts in the Pricing Team and is accountable to the Pricing Development Lead. This will involve liaison with the other teams within pricing and NHS Improvement, including the Improvement, Medical and Nursing directorates.
Main Accountabilities:
  • Development of policies in the areas of costing, payment, price-setting methodology and information;
  • Lead projects as agreed by the Pricing Development Lead into development, piloting, evaluation and implementation of new payment approaches and pricing regulatory tools, including working with the vanguard sites;
  • Write policy for pricing in line with Monitor’s responsibilities in this area; 
  • Manage the delivery of payment research conducted for Monitor by external consultants and research bodies;
  • Undertake policy appraisals and impact assessments of proposed projects to determine how they affect commissioners and providers;
  • Manage project governance milestones including paper submission to pricing leadership team meetings for review and decision;
  • Influence diverse audiences through presentations, committee papers and in face-to-face meetings;
  • Manage advisory input from stakeholders to ensure projects are clinically relevant, transparent, evidence-based and predictable;
  • Assign junior resources to activities flexibly and in response to changing workflows.
Key external relationships: 
  • NHS England
  • Department of Health
  • Providers
  • Commissioners
  • University research teams specialising in health sector pricing / external consultants
  • Clinical Reference Groups
Closing date for receipt of applications is midnight, Monday, 28th November, 2016. The selection process will include a presentation and interview.
