VACANCY (Post Title): Health & Social Care Intelligence Analyst
GRADE: Band 5
SALARY: £22,218 to £28,746 pro rata
Description of Role:
An opportunity has arisen for a highly numerate, creative person educated to degree level to work in NHS Dumfries & Galloway. The Health and Social Care Intelligence Analyst post requires demonstrable experience of turning data into meaningful intelligence and strong spreadsheet and charting skills. The post will support service redesign, continuous improvement, reducing inequalities and improving population health across NHS Dumfries & Galloway.
The post holder will extract, analyse, interpret, present and explain data and their limitations, determining priorities for action, assist in the wider understanding of the issues and actively disseminate the findings of analyses with a high level of communication skills. The successful candidate will have the capability to lead on some pieces of work independently.
The position is based in Strategic Planning within a well established friendly team of analysts. Working within a smaller health board/local authority has a number of advantages including the opportunity to support a diverse range of services/initiatives and working directly with senior decision makers. There will be opportunities to develop specialist skills and knowledge in a variety of areas such as GIS, rurality issues, measuring deprivation and process improvement methodology.
Whilst the post holder may be involved with supporting the whole range of business intelligence functions, the main responsibilities of the post involve supporting the intelligence requirements for the integration of health and social services. There are strong links with the local authority and partners in the academic, third and independent sectors.
The position is situated in the beautiful southwest corner of Scotland in a smaller rural health board/local authority. Dumfries and Galloway is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a number of wildlife and nature reserves as well as the first Dark Sky Park in the UK. The region offers excellent schools and good quality affordable housing but still with easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Northern England and Ireland. There are abundant local amenities and sporting possibilities with fitness clubs, golf courses, fishing, sailing, hill walking and mountain biking at the '7 stanes'. There is also a strong cultural scene and artistic community with playhouses, galleries and music festivals as well as The Big Burns Supper which is held annually in memory of Robert Burns.
