Patient Safety & Risk Manager

King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

We have an exciting opportunity for a Senior Patient Safety Manager to join the Patient Safety Team at this large teaching hospital.

You will play a key role in promoting patient safety within one of our Divisions. One key aspect of your role will be to investigate adverse incidents and work collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams to achieve sustained improvements in patient care. You will also work across Specialty boundaries on identified safety projects, especially those related to preventable harm which may include medication errors, responding to patient deterioration, hospital-acquired thrombosis, hospital infections, and implementation of the surgical safety checklist.

Developing and maintaining credibility with clinical staff in the Division is critical to being successful in this role.

You will also work closely with a range of staff to ensure your Division complies with the wider governance scope, risk registers are maintained and used to drive improvements in safety.

You will have excellent knowledge of the principles and application of risk management processes. Current clinical registration (eg. as a midwife or nurse) is desirable but not essential. Having worked in the healthcare setting, excellent interpersonal, analytical and organisational skills are essential.

If you are committed to patient safety and clinical excellence, this position will be both challenging and rewarding.
