Administrator for Operational Delivery Networks

Job description

The ODNs work with the national Clinical Reference Group Chairs, Regional Programme of Care Leads, local hub level Specialised Commissioning teams, NHS England, CCGs, Health Education England and Public Health England to deliver programmes of work to achieve better outcomes for each patient group

Critically ill and critically injured children may present in Emergency Departments (ED), Children’s Assessment Services (CAS) or become critically ill whilst in in-patient (IP) children’s services. Those needing an enhanced level of observation, monitoring or intervention will need to be taken to a Paediatric Critical Care Unit (PCCU).

Three levels of critical care are recognised in which Levels 1 and 2 map to high dependency care and Level 3 relates to intensive care. In the Paediatric Critical Care (PCC) Levels 1, 2 and 3 paediatric critical care are also known as follows: Level 1 (L1) critical care: Basic Critical Care Level 2 (L2) critical care: Intermediate Critical Care Level 3 (L3) critical care: Advanced Critical Care Children needing intermediate or advanced critical care may need to be transferred by a Specialist Paediatric Transport Service. Within our region we have close links with SORT (Southampton and Oxford Retrieval Team). Anaesthetists and / or intensivists are crucial to the resuscitation and stabilisation of critically ill children and may be involved in the provision of ongoing paediatric critical care. Some children may spend a short period of time in a General (Adult) Intensive Care Unit (GICU) while waiting for the Specialist Paediatric Transport Service or because their condition is expected to improve quickly. These services should be working together within a Paediatric Critical Care Operational Delivery Network.

The aims of the networks are:

  • To establish appropriate network leadership and governance arrangements that will support the network in the delivery of its aims;
  • To deliver excellent care and treatment for children who require PCC, along the whole patient pathway, improving outcomes, quality of care and patient and family experience;
  • To ensure that nationally set specifications and standards of service are consistently met across the network;
  • To continue to ensure the operation of common referral, care and transfer pathways and other policies, protocols, and procedures across the network;
  • To ensure that as much care and treatment is provided as close as possible to home and that the patient and their family travel only when essential, while ensuring timely access for interventional procedures and the best possible outcome for the patient.
  • To ensure the safe and effective transition of young people from paediatrics to adult services and also neonates to paediatrics
  • To identify the level 2 centres and to support their operation and development.
  • To establish and maintain systems for the collection, analysis and reporting of data on outcomes, quality of care and patient and family experience.
  • To undertake audit, and other service improvement activities including reflecting on and responding to suboptimal outcomes, care and patient experience;
  • To ensure efficient and appropriate flow of patients along the pathway, managing system capacity and improving system resilience.
  • To support effective workforce planning across the network, including training and the professional development of all clinical staff involved within PCC.
  • To work closely with the other ODNs
