The Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) Programme will help NHS trusts reduce unwarranted variation in clinical quality, productivity and efficiency across 40 clinical work-streams and associated clinical services and enable £5bn of annual recurring efficiencies to be delivered by 2020-21.

GIRFT are expanding their lung cancer workstream and are looking for three lung cancer specialist nurses to join their team on a fixed term contract.

The successful applicant will join the Lung Cancer Clinical Leads using the proven GIRFT methodology, relating to the delivery of the Optimal Lung Cancer pathway and variations in care across England. Providers will be benchmarked against one another and best practice, with each trust receiving a comprehensive review of their data and receiving support to tackle the challenges and findings behind the variation that the review highlights.

The aim is to visit all trusts within a six-month timeline commencing November 2019 to April 2020; this will help ensure the findings can be implemented in a timely manner and to meet with the requirements of the optimal pathway.
