This is a rare opportunity to join the small but influential Clinical Effectiveness Team, who work across SHSC to support evidence-led care.

Applications are welcome from colleagues from a wide variety of work backgrounds.

Main duties of the job

The Clinical Audit Facilitator is responsible for the running of SHSC's clinical audit and and service evaluation function: developing audit tools, providing analysis, reporting progress, action planning and disseminating outcomes across the Trust. The post-holder will plan, implement, facilitate and action plan all aspects of the audit cycle and will communicate audit results using a variety of methods, suitable to the receiving audience. The post-holder is required to provide training (basic and advanced) to staff in clinical audit and to assist staff in analysing and interpreting audit results.
