At HRCH, we only want to provide the type of outstanding care that we would recommend to our family and friends.

We provide community healthcare and urgent treatment services for over 515,000 people living across the London boroughs of Hounslow and Richmond-Upon-Thames.

In the latest NHS Staff Survey results for community trusts, we had the highest percentage of staff in the country who felt their role made a difference to patients. We also had top scores for satisfaction with the quality of care staff can deliver.

In 2018 we were named ‘Best Place to Work for Employee Satisfaction’ by the Nursing Times and won the HSJ Workforce Award.

Our job is all about people and we believe that staff who feel valued and supported deliver better outcomes for our patients, so we invest in our people and their ideas.

With some of the best career development, staff wellbeing and flexible working opportunities around, you will be well looked after so that you can make a positive difference to the lives of people in our community.


An exciting secondment opportunity has arisen for a flexible, enthusiastic, self-motivated person to join the Quality and Clinical Excellence team. The post holder will be responsible for implementing the Trust’s Clinical Audit and Effectiveness programme and support development and implementation of the Research strategy.

We are looking for an individual with understanding of clinical audit and effectiveness, patient outcome work and quality improvement activities including implementation of NICE guidance, along with an understanding of clinical research delivery in the healthcare setting.

Working closely with senior clinical and managerial colleagues you will be key in facilitating a wide range of projects, supporting design and development of appropriate clinical audit tools, maintaining related information on various databases, analysing data from a variety of sources and report writing.

As part of the Quality and Clinical Excellence team, our work is to support effective clinical quality and effectiveness processes to ensure a culture of learning and continuous improvement, with an emphasis on improved patient care and monitoring the impact of implementing change. We are also responsible for raising the Trust Research profile internally and externally.
