You will have a lead role in the development and implementation of innovation, new clinical processes and pathways, advising and overseeing service reconfigurations, consultant appraisals, revalidation and related job planning.

Alongside executive colleagues, you will also work to ensure that the organisation fosters and further establishes a culture of excellence in all areas of patient care and safety ensuring colleagues have the opportunity to ‘Develop, Belong and Thrive, Here’ at DBTH.
