An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Quality & Safety Team within Women's & Children's Clinical Management Group (CMG) at UHL NHS Trust. The post requires a dynamic, self motivated individual who is able to interact with many different members of the clinical and corporate teams. Working in close relationships with the CMG Senior Management Team, the Quality & Safety and Clinical teams, you will develop and generate guidance that is reflective of best practice and underpinned by national guidance and available information, whilst also ensuring that the guidelines are responsive to issues arising from clinical incidents and complaints. The CMG prides itself on having a high level of compliance with the Trust agenda for guideline requirements, including an extremely high proportion of guidelines in date and a proactive approach to ensuring that they are reviewed within the requisite time frames to ensure that this endures.

Both the CMG and the Trust have a strong governance process that is well established and enables a high level of scrutiny of guidelines prior to finalisation, which facilitates the formation of robust guidelines that are clear and fit for purpose.

More recently the role has begun to acquire the development and governance of Patient Information Leaflets and LOCSSIPS for the CMG.

The successful candidate will have an active role within the CMG audit programme and will support and develop others to be able to undertake audits and ensure that they are done so within an approved framework.

If you are applying from outside of the Trust and were hoping for a full time position, please be advised that there are both nursing and midwifery vacancies available within the CMG and there is scope for the successful candidate to be appointed into a clinical role for the remaining 0.5 WTE hours, although this would not be at a B7. Please indicate if this is something you wish to be considered for in your supporting information part of your application.
