OpenSAFELY PPIE Lead Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford We are recruiting a Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) Lead to work with Professor Ben Goldacre and the Bennett Institute for Applied Data Science on the NHS England OpenSAFELY Service - a secure analytics platform, which provides research access to full GP records for 58M people, and facilitates efficient and reproducible analyses while fully protecting confidentiality at all times.

The successful applicant will be part of our exciting and ground breaking work, providing secure access to health data and enabling research of clear benefit to society. You will play a pivotal role in ensuring that patients and the public are fully engaged in our work, as we grow the service and broaden its remit to enable secure research on a growing range of health conditions. Our PPIE is less developed in this area, and there will be the opportunity to develop and implement innovative approaches to it. The engagement will be through a combination of work with our established Digital Critical Friends group, and wider activities developed and coordinated with PPIE leads in NHS England.

You will also develop a PPIE strategy for the wider Bennett Institute, and build strong and effective relationships with PPIE leads within the wider department and university, and within NHS England and other partner organisations.

You will be an experienced PPIE practitioner, able to work across competing priorities and provide strategic advice to senior leaders on appropriate engagement activities, to inform decision making. You will have strong people skills, and be able to work effectively with patients and the public, colleagues, and stakeholders.

You will be based in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Radcliffe Primary Care Building, Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 6GG as your normal place of work, but you will be able to agree a pattern of regular remote working with your line manager.

The position is offered full or part time (min 20 hours per week, working pattern negotiable) and funded by NHS England, until 31st October 2026 in the first instance.
