This is an exciting opportunity to work in a fast-paced innovative patient safety team.

Patient safety is a ‘golden thread’ throughout the NHS Long Term plan and our aim is to support the North West Coast to be one of the safest healthcare systems in the world.

Our work is commissioned by NHS England and Improvement and we work collaboratively across the breadth of our Patient Safety Collaborative on national and local workstreams.

We work with patients and staff across Lancashire, South Cumbria, Cheshire and Merseyside. Our current areas of focus are:

  • Deteriorating patient
  • Maternal and Neonatal Health
  • Medicines safety and optimisation
  • Adoption and spread of proven patient safety interventions
  • Mental health

We are involved in developing and delivering learning systems, workshops and coaching staff from the front-line to board level in quality improvement and patient safety.

You will be working closely with our Programme Managers and Associate Directors on their programmes and will also get the opportunity to work across the breadth of our work within the Innovation Agency. You will bring experience of working with or within the NHS, along with a passion for patient safety improvement.

For this role we are looking for a confident and effective communicator with good experience of managing complex projects, ideally within the health and care sector. The successful candidate will also have the ability to be agile in a rapidly changing environment.

This role is a permanent appointment and we would also consider applications for part-time hours and secondments.
