We are looking to appoint an experienced and highly motivated Registered Healthcare professional to lead on the development of a culture of innovation and continuous quality improvement, within our newly established Patient Safety Directorate.

You will manage the coordination and delivery of multiple quality improvement projects in order to achieve defined outcomes that span quality and safety and culture change and monitor the impact and effects of your work to drive improvements in outcomes and patient experience.

You will have the opportunity to manage quality projects and programmes that will include a number of work streams that support the Trust’s Integrated Quality Improvement Plan.

In your role, you will work with team members to encourage creative thinking, identify options, and develop methods to test new ways of delivering services. You will work with linked groups of professionals to ensure equitable provision of high quality effective services and ensure that information and opportunities to actively engage others in network projects are maximised. In turn you will need to develop the Quality Improvement capacity and capability across the Trust, supporting staff development through planning, delivering and evaluating programmes of Quality Improvement training.
