First, a bit about us
A top 20 UK charity, St Andrew’s is a unique provider of specialist care in mental health and learning disability. We aspire to deliver truly world class, holistic services within our outstanding, modern facilities. Our independence means we can always put patients’ interests at the heart of decision making, while re-investing surpluses in frontline services.
We are currently transforming the Charity and are introducing Integrated Practice Units (IPUs) as the vehicle to deliver ‘Value Based Healthcare’. This will ensure our patients consistently get the best possible outcomes and local teams gain more control and responsibility.
What you need to know about this role
This is a brand new role designed to co-ordinate the development, implementation and management of the Charity’s Clinical Effectiveness Strategy. You will work closely with the IPUs and our clinical staff to inform and support them in delivering the best possible care for our patients.
You will report to the Executive Medical Director and collaborate with a range of internal Leaders and partners to create an integrated approach to Clinical Effectiveness. You will facilitate projects relating to Clinical Effectiveness and help to set goals and action plans for IPUs and Clinical staff and introduce effective measuring and monitoring processes that measure the impact of the Clinical Effectiveness Strategy.
And a little more about you
You will have a good knowledge and experience of the principles and practices of Clinical Effectiveness, Quality Improvement and governance, and an understanding of National Clinical Audit programmes.
You will have excellent interpersonal, organisational skills, and be able to engage with a diverse range of colleagues across the Charity. With a high level of attention to detail and accuracy, you will be adept in the analysis of data and information to help drive change.
An innovative, enthusiastic and approachable individual, you will be ready to take on this highly visible role during a period of significant change.
