This post is available for up to 21 months ending no later than 30 June 2019 to support the development of the Dementia Pathfinder (Phase Two) Programme of Research. Prior to this Programme, the original (Phase One) Atlantic Philanthropies/Delivering Social Change Programme included a package of dementia projects (£6.25m) that aim to transform the commissioning, design and delivery of dementia services. The Phase One programme has been approved and has commenced operation. This Programme, Phase Two, complements and builds upon Phase One and shares the same governance structures. It focuses on:


• E-health and social care - building on the investments made in our connected health infrastructure to improve the patient journey for people with dementia and better support families and carers - and to create a platform that can be utilised for a faster rollout of e-health solutions across the health and social care system; and


• Dementia analytics - building the capacity to collect and use dementia data to improve the planning and commissioning of efficient, effective and value for money dementia services - and to create a platform that can be utilised to enable data driven care-planning solutions across the health and social care system.


Anticipated interview date: Friday 24 November 2017
