This Future Leaders post provides a fantastic opportunity to understand and undertake improvement at scale within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (STHFT). The post will involve facilitating collaborative working across disciplines whilst allowing the fellow the time and autonomy to develop as a leader. The fellow must demonstrate and develop excellent leadership, team-working and system knowledge skills for the success of their individual project.  The fellow will either lead a high priority Trust-wide project aiming to increase the participation of junior doctors in quality improvement at STHFT, thinking innovatively, finding novel solutions to the practicalities of engaging with junior doctors and demonstrate effective leadership in order to drive improvements in the current programme or working to embed SAFER principles, supporting teams to use QI metholdology to reduce long lengths of stay, getting patients home sooner. This post will build on the work of previous fellows, aiming to further improve this work in both content and widening engagement, looking locally and nationally at alternative models and best practice in this field.  Opportunities will be available for the fellow to access training via the Microsystems Coaching Academy, in addition to local leadership development events. They will have the opportunity to engage with the senior leadership of STHFT, as well as attend external events with senior colleagues, including at the King’s Fund, Nuffield Trust and Quality Improvement Networks
