Are you looking for a new challenge? An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within the Emergency Planning Service at Liverpool University Hospitals. We are seeking to recruit a proactive, innovative, and effective individual to the EPRR Practitioner post within our team.

The post holder will work alongside the Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response Manager to support the delivery of the EPRR service across the trust. The role of the EPRR Practitioner is to assist in delivering the EPRR Strategy within a governance framework, including emergency preparedness and business continuity planning, training and response requirements. The role is wide and varied and involves working with a range of teams across three hospital sites.

The aim of the EPRR Strategy is to prepare for and deliver an effective emergency response across a range of potential emergency situations. The vision of the service is to provide a best quality and resilient service for a substantial acute Trust including a major trauma centre.

The role requires an experienced individual who can work in a fast paced, changing environment, is able to adapt to new situations and can demonstrate flexibility and resilience. The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills and be confident in engaging with people across the trust. The post holder will be expected to prioritise daily tasks and on-going work steams to ensure completion within agreed time-frames.

Experience of EPRR or relevant experience is required for the post with the ability to develop plans, procedures or guidance. The post holder will require experience in problem solving, applying practical solutions and training. An understanding of healthcare service delivery would be advantageous.

Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was created on 1 October 2019 following the merger of two adult acute Trusts, Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The merger provides an opportunity to reconfigure services in a way that provides the best healthcare services to the city and improves the quality of care and health outcomes that patients experience.

The Trust runs Aintree University Hospital, Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool University Dental Hospital and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

It serves a core population of around 630,000 people across Merseyside as well as providing a range of highly specialist services to a catchment area of more than two million people in the North West region and beyond.
