    Opportunity: Data Review Manager @ Genomics England -- London, UK
    Submitted by Eugene Mc Daid; posted on Tuesday, May 07, 2019



    To build on the success of the 100,000 Genomes Project, the Government tasked NHS England with support from Genomics England to launch a new NHS Genomic Medicine Service comprising a National Genomic Test Directory where 300,000 tests have been re-profiled and whole genome sequencing will be available for direct healthcare. Through 7 Genomic Laboratory Hubs this offers equitable access to the 55 million people in England to the latest genomic medicine and research. This will lead to faster diagnosis and personalised medicine. Genomics England has been asked to prepare a plan for up to 5 million genomic tests over the next 5 years.

    • Proactively manage risks, assumptions, issues and dependencies, ensuring that these are identified, mitigated or escalated as necessary to achieve key objectives and to ensure policy compliance.
    • Identify opportunities for streamlining/automating the process and manage via the existing change control process within Genomics England.
    • Provide reporting on usage and risks at an agreed frequency and produce materials for senior managers and teams overseeing the Research Environment and / or data governance at Genomics England.
    • Work with the GeCIP Membership and Communications Coordinator to develop and implement a communications plan to engage key stakeholders within and outside of Genomics England in defining and ensuring the success of the Airlock.
