King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching Trusts with a turnover of c£1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,800 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London. The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) sites at Denmark Hill in Camberwell and at the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in the London Borough of Bromley.

A new opportunity has arisen at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as a Claims Officer. This role is initially advertised as a 12-month fixed term contract, although there is a possibility that the role will become a permanent role after the initial contract is completed.

To successfully fill this role, we are looking for an individual who has experience in reviewing healthcare claims and working with panel solicitors and the NHS Resolution to manage and resolve claims in the interests of the Trust. Claims concern clinical negligence; property and employer's liability. The successful applicant will be a strong communicator and able to think clearly and quickly under pressure. In addition, we are looking for someone who understands the importance of ensuring that the Trust learns lessons from claims and feeds this information back to the relevant departments within the Trust when things have gone wrong. 

We are looking for candidates who have experience in working in highly sensitive environments and are a strong team player, willing and able to flex according to department needs.  Any successful applicant will need to demonstrate and embody the values of the NHS.
