This is an exciting opportunity to join our quality improvement team.  We are looking for post holders who will provide leadership, management and direction in order to embed improvement science and a culture of continuous improvement across the divisions contributing to corporate objectives. They will be responsible for overseeing implementation of the QI operations.

The role of the Quality Improvement (QI) central team is to support and enable improvement work, developed and owned at the front line, in clinical and non-clinical services. The team will collaborate with divisions to provide training, standardised tools, events, knowledge-sharing, project tracking, expertise, presence, ownership and peer support for QI work. 

The post holder will champion, inspire and lead the development of a culture where improvement is a core component of every member of staff’s daily routine.  Promoting outstanding care and work in a way that is patient-centred, involves service users, responds positively to feedback and promotes learning and continuous improvement

This post offers you the opportunity to contribute fully to wide-ranging Quality improvement activities within the West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust with the express aim of increasing the capacity and capability for QI to deliver the trusts vision; to provide the best care for every patient, every day.

Interviews will be held during the first week of June.
