Improving quality is about making health care safe, effective, patient-centred, timely, efficient and equitable. In the NHS, there is increasing focus on improving the quality of health services. We hope to recruit a senior anaesthetic or intensive care medicine trainee to a year-long quality improvement fellowship post to support quality improvement work within the trust.

In UHL the new quality strategy ‘Becoming the Best’ is looking to embed quality improvement in the everyday work of all staff. A quality improvement fellow would be ideally placed to contribute to this improvement movement, both by having time to be able to dedicate to the implementation and coordination of quality improvement projects and being able to provide training in quality improvement to the multidisciplinary teams within the trust.

In the document ‘Quality Improvement: training for better outcomes’, the Academy of Joint Medical Colleges suggests that a progressive curriculum in quality improvement activity should underpin all training stages of a doctor and Quality improvement should be integral to all clinical and non-clinical job descriptions and appraisal.

In Annex G of the curriculum, the Royal College of Anaesthetists dictates that all trainees should have involvement in quality improvement work and be educated in improvement science. The Fellow will assist us in ensuring we provide this to our anaesthetic trainees.

During the course of this year long fellowship they will develop a portfolio of work that will be of a standard to present at national level, raising Leicester’s profile in the world of quality improvement and helping to secure them a consultant post in the future.

While the day to day work of the fellow will be dedicated to quality improvement work, their on-call duties will be undertaken in theatres, intensive care or on the delivery suite. This will ensure the on-call rota is staffed with trainees of appropriate experience to facilitate the smooth running of the service.

The Quality Improvement fellow will be a vital cog in the quality improvement machine within UHL and drive improvement work for the benefit of patients and staff alike.
