Clinical Lead Opportunities with Getting It Right First Time Programme
An opportunity to make a difference to your specialty at a national level
This is an exciting opportunity to join the GIRFT Programme, which in 2017 is expanding from 11 to 29 clinical work-streams including three additional surgical specialties in the following areas:
- Acute and General Medicine
- Breast surgery
- Diabetes & endocrinology
- Emergency medicine
- Geriatric medicine
- Imaging & radiology
- Intensive & critical care
- Outpatients Review
- Plastic surgery and burns
The Clinical Leads will oversee the creation of a national review of all data using the proven GIRFT methodology relating to the delivery of their specialty 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 role will involve close collaborative working with national clinical directors and Specialised Commissioning Clinical Reference Group chairs within NHS England, where they are in place, and also with specialty leads where they exist within the Medical Directorate of NHS Improvement.
The programme is looking for skilled and effective clinical leaders who are recognised as experts by their clinical colleagues and have the endorsement of their specialty societies. The roles are an exciting opportunity to make a contribution to the shaping of the service nationally, engaging with stakeholders across the specialty and the country.
They will be on a part-time secondment basis over an initial two-year period and we anticipate an average commitment of 88 days per year.
We would ask that in the first instance you discuss this opportunity with your existing employer to obtain their support in principle for your application and seek the endorsement of your professional society.
