Job Description

This role offers an exciting opportunity for a Registration Manager to join the National Disease Registration Service (NDRS), working within the National Congenital Anomaly and Rare Disease Registration Service (NCARDRS).

In April 2015, Public Health England (PHE) transferred existing regional congenital anomaly registers in to the organisation as part of its implementation of a national congenital anomaly registration service. The focus then moved to recruiting new registration teams to cover the 51% of births in England without congenital anomaly registration coverage to complete set-up of the new national service - NCARDRS. To date, the programme has focused on congenital anomaly registration, but we are now beginning development of the rare disease element of the programme.

As Registration Manager for the NCARDRS West Midlands team (part of the Midlands & East region), you will be responsible for the day to day management of the staff within the registration team, this includes responsibility for achieving objectives, performance management and employee development.

You will be responsible for ensuring registration data conforms to national NCARDRS standards and all associated national targets are met. The Registration Manager will be responsible for ensuring uniformity in the recording of the NCARDRS dataset through stringent application of all registration procedures.

This post takes a lead and co-ordination role for a specific specialist area of work for the national service, reporting in to NCARDRS leads and Programme Managers, and supporting those posts to drive registration and analysis. The specialist area for this post is data liaison and further detail is given in Appendix A of the full Job description and person specification.

  • You will have responsibility for and oversee data management on a local and national level, providing feedback, identifying and developing potential improvements and ensuring high quality data is delivered.
  • You will be able to provide expert guidance, analysis and interpretation of data and present that back to different audiences, as well as being responsible for data collection and extraction.
  • You will own stakeholder relationships and be responsible for identifying ways to ensure quality assurance of data and providing feedback.
  • This role includes line management. You will lead and mentor your regional team ensuring priorities are met both locally and nationally.
  • You will take responsibility for personal and team compliance with Information Governance policies and procedures.

As part of the recruitment process, you will be asked to complete either a test or a presentation at the interview stage. Further details will be given if you are invited to interview.
