We are looking for a GP skilled in quality improvement to lead GP practices across Southend and Castle Point and Rochford in quality improvement collaboratives. If you are passionate about quality improvement and keen to further develop your improvement and coaching skills, we want to hear from you.

The Primary Care Collaborative Programme for Southend and Castle Point and Rochford is an adaptation of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement Breakthrough Series Collaborative model. It will bring together practices in their localities to develop improvement skills, run quality improvement projects, and share learning across the region.

The aim of the programme is to strengthen capability and capacity in primary care and enable staff to continue to use improvement techniques going forwards.

The GP QI lead will be the clinical lead of the collaboratives, supported by a UCLPartners Improvement Advisor, and working closely with the Head of Quality and Capability Development Programmes, and Professor Martin Marshall, Programme Director for Primary Care Development.

The role has two main priorities:

  • Operational delivery of the collaboratives, including creating content and delivering training to practices
  • Developing the skills of eight local QI leads for the region through coaching and hands on support.

Working as part of a multidisciplinary team, this post offers an exciting opportunity to work closely with front line teams developing their improvement skills.

This is an exciting opportunity for a capable, enthusiastic and highly motivated individual, who is looking to put their improvement and coaching skills into action across a region.
