Clinical and Pharmacist Leads

We are recruiting senior clinicians and a senior pharmacist to work with the West of England AHSN on a two-year, part-time secondment basis.

The West of England AHSN improves patient safety and adoption of innovation across the health and care system in the West of England. These secondments are an opportunity to work with all our member organisations working in health, as well as universities, innovators and social care. We are part of the national network of 15 AHSNs so the successful applicants will also collaborate on national projects.

Clinical Leads

  • Closing date: Friday 30 October 2020

We are looking for senior clinicians to work with the West of England AHSN for up to two days a week. This will be a two-year secondment, reviewed after one year.

The clinical leads will work across two directorates: Service and System Transformation (which includes our Patient Safety Collaborative), and Innovation and Growth. The leads will lead and contribute to our patient safety projects, as well as the portfolio of developing, testing and adopting innovation. This involves working with NHS organisations, universities, SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises) and innovators.

Applicants need to have experience in quality improvement, patient safety or innovation. We welcome applicants from all specialties but we require at least one lead to have experience of working in primary and community care.

Applicants will need to be able to work with us for a minimum of one day a week but we can be flexible and increase or decrease according to candidate’s preference.
