These include learning, quality improvement, clinical and economic evidence, decision support, clinical audit and performance measurement; together these are helping healthcare providers drive significant quality improvements and make economic savings. This is a fast expanding £20m business deserving the best operational controls, financial rigour and reporting.

You’ll have the confidence and credibility to share your ideas, gaining buy-in and ensuring that all stakeholders are fully engaged in the process of planning and delivering continued growth. Desirable though not essential, is experience in: working internationally, healthcare, media or consultancy services.
