The Project Coordinator (Quality Assurance) is a crucial role for the College as you will be responsible for organising, attending, and conducting Peer Reviews, whilst ensuring a robust quality assurance process is administered.
Reporting to the Quality Assurance Project Manager, you will gather and analyse all information from the Peer Reviews to identify good practices, challenges and risks, and write Peer Review reports which will contribute to maintaining and improving the high standards of quality in all aspects of the College’s National Diabetes Quality Programme.
You will be required to manage discussions on immediate risks and serious concerns during a Peer Review, which will be fed back to the paediatric unit to improve the overall quality of service provision and patient outcomes.
In addition, as an influential member of the National Diabetes Quality Programme team, you will train clinicians as Peer Reviewers and provide support and contributions to the Programme management team.
Degree qualified or with suitable equivalent experience, you will have the ability to analyse a range of information in different formats and to present it to internal and external stakeholders, verbally and in writing, in a clear and concise manner.
An expert in project management, you should have strong organisational skills with experience of managing several projects to their specific deadlines and targets.
A knowledge and understanding of current NHS policies, strategies, and regulatory frameworks for child health services and experience of inspection and/or reviews of clinical services would be desirable. The ability to work out of hours and away from home when supporting a Peer Review is essential.
The National Diabetes Quality Programme works with Paediatric Diabetes Units, medical multidisciplinary team members and the National Diabetes Network with the aim of improving multidisciplinary care for children and young people with diabetes in the NHS, reducing unwarranted variations and involving families in service improvement in a developmental way.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health sets and maintains standards for the education and training of all doctors working in paediatrics and child health in the UK. We advocate on child health issues at home and internationally. Additionally, through a variety of activities, the College influences the quality of medical practice for children in hospital and in the community.
The RCPCH has more than 20,000 members and fellows and employs around 170 staff, most of whom work in our London office in Holborn. We have smaller offices in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The RCPCH wants to represent all the communities we serve. Appointment will be made solely on merit. However, the College is particularly keen to receive applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, and/or candidates with a disability who are currently under-represented at this level of the organisation.
All staff are currently working in the office for a minimum of 60% of the week and the remainder from home.
