The aim of the fellowship post offered in quality improvement is to enable the successful fellow to understand and undertake improvement at scale within Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Hospital Trust. The project would focus on the delivering of a single clerking process for patients being admitted to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. This has been successful at other hospitals which have seen significant gains in terms of patient flow, patient experience and earlier senior review. The Sheffield Microsystem Academy and the FLOW programme have ensured that quality improvement and systems thinking are embedded in the organisations culture. This is a project that will require an obvious process change to standard working but more significantly a culture change to allow this improvement to occur for the benefit of both patients and staff. The fellow would demonstrate and develop excellent leadership, teamworking and system knowledge skills for the success of this project.
