Change management programme vacancies

We’re setting up a large scale change programme to improve the way we deliver our services, which includes the introduction of a clinical records system.

Successful results will see this leading-edge system being used effectively by more than 3,500 staff across Wakefield, Barnsley, Calderdale and Kirklees. This will be no mean feat. The implementation phase of the programme will last for approximately 18 months; during which, and after, it is just as much about changing culture and practice, as it is about technology solutions, as we seek to use the system to improve the delivery of our services.
