We're seeking an 8B Interim Manager who is experienced across Patient Safety, Risk and Compliance, to provide team leadership for an NHS trust in the Midlands, whilst also preparing them for a CQC visit. Commencing early July this interim post is subject to the NHS Provider agency cap, and offers flexibility to occaisionally work remotely.

The trust have a committed and experienced substantive team in place so your responsibilities will include being a point of escalation, bringing them together as a team and keeping systems running to provide assurance to the Executive body around patient safety, compliance, risk and serious incidents. The organisation is keen to retain or build upon their current CQC rating, so your expertise in preparing the governance and assurance framework for CQC inspections is paramount; being a critical friend in seeking to identify areas for improvement and delivering embedding those improvements. This role will see you working directly with the service lines and influencing and engaging from Ward to Board.

We're therefore seeing an experienced Patient Safety Manager who has a track record of supporting NHS organisations in CQC visit preparation. Ideally you possess experience of management across patient safety, safeguarding, compliance and Serious Incidents too. Whilst a clinical background isn't necessary, credibility and the ability to influence at all levels is key.
