According to Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust “Quality and safety are high on [their] agenda. We have made significant improvements in the way we deliver healthcare to patients and to the quality of care delivered. We are committed to keeping patients safe and learning from our mistakes.”
To top it all, the trust is looking for a Head of Governance. This does not mean the trust is looking for a new chair of the board of directors, but, rather, “someone who will be responsible for oversight and delivery of the Trust’s governance agenda, incorporating patient safety, risk management, information governance and clinical audit.”
The trust is looking for “someone with a sound knowledge at postgraduate level” and “a highly motivated professional who is passionate about good governance and risk management and ideally grounded in frontline experience of working in a busy hospital environment. You must be an excellent communicator with the energy and vision to motivate change in custom and practice in risk management, quality assurance and improvement across the organisation. You will have a track record of delivery and a full understanding of compliance regimes and accreditation processes and standards within the health sector.”
This is a Band 8c NHS position (£54,454 – £67,134) and the closing date for applications is 10 August 2010.
