NAT volunteer opportunity- Admin support for the Commissioners Group
Posted on: October 24 2012, 11:10 am

Please circulate the following amongst your networks and to anyone who may be interested in volunteering for NAT.

Volunteer opportunity – Admin support for the English HIV & Sexual Health Commissioners Group. 
Approx one day a week for 3 months.
Start: as soon as possible


NAT provides the Secretariat to the English HIV & Sexual Health Commissioners Group.  Commissioners are responsible for planning the HIV & sexual health services an area needs and purchasing these on behalf of the NHS.  By running the Commissioners Group, NAT gives these experts a chance to share best practice and stay up to date with important developments with HIV and sexual health.

As with all NHS services, HIV and sexual health is in a period of transition. From April 2013, sexual health will no longer be commissioned from PCTs, but from local authorities. 

There is a great deal of uncertainty associated with the transition and fears that service quality could be affected.  This means it is more important than ever that the Commissioners Group continue to promote best practice in HIV and sexual health commissioning.

We are looking for a volunteer to help us manage the administrative challenges of this period of change for the Commissioners Group.  This will involve:
•   Identifying new members for the Commissioners Group from Local Authorities
•   Helping new members join the Commissioners Group
•   Creating and maintaining up-to-date spreadsheets of all current, previous and pending members of the Commissioners Group
•   Working with the policy and campaigns team to contact members as needed.

This is a perfect opportunity for someone who is confident on the telephone, has strong organisational skills, an eye for detail, and wants to help streamline NAT’s relationships with these very important stakeholders at a critical time.

We would ideally like someone who could spend around one day on these tasks on a flexible basis, working in the NAT office, between November (or late October) 2012 and January 2013. 

We can pay travel expenses for London zone 1- 6 and reasonable lunch expenses.
