Are you able to challenge established practice, the status quo, waste and inefficiency and encourage others to adopt new ways of working to improve quality? If so, then an exciting opportunity has arisen for a Service Improvement Lead to work for the Division of Clinical Support and Cancer Services. We are looking to improve the way we work in Oncology services and adopt new ways of working to help us manage the increasing demands on the service.

You will lead a review of current services and identify improved ways of working. You will work closely with medical staff, nurses, AHP’s and admin to drive changes and develop a longer term strategy to address current workforce shortfalls and design a new way of meeting the needs of the cancer patients.

We are looking for someone who will identify best practice both nationally and internally and can find ways of bringing this best practice to our local services.  We require someone with the skills to identify change and to see it through to completion involving staff and patients in the transition to ensure the new ways of working are embedded.

The successful candidate will have the tenacity to make change, the people skills to convince teams to move on improvement, and the curiosity and persuasive creativity to look across all boundaries to identify best practice for the continual improvement of our services and most importantly an enhanced patient experience.

This is a new fixed term post ending on the 31st March 2019 and the working hours are flexible from 22.5hours to full time post working 37.5 hours per week.

There is a proposed interview date of  24th January 2018
