Salary: 40-45k for the right candidate
Turning Point is one of Englands leading health and social care organisations. We know that delivering integrated services for some of the most vulnerable members of society takes more than excellent planning and resources. It takes a willingness to listen to our users. It takes the flexibility to tailor solutions to individual needs. And above all, it takes a passionate commitment to improving the quality and impact of everything we do.
Which is why this role will give you tremendous scope to use – and develop – your expertise and leadership skills.
From day one, you will work closely with the senior managers and staff in our services to ensure that Turning Point delivers high quality, evidence-based services. This will involve supporting the development and implementation of our quality assurance systems and clinical governance framework. In practical terms, you will represent the Risk and Assurance Department and be an expert in clinical and social care practice and mental health issues, whilst ensuring full compliance with both regulatory and internal standards. In addition to conducting audits, you will contribute to policy development and provide informed advice to colleagues at all levels. You will also explore ways of developing our services to maximise their effectiveness and reach as many people as possible.
It goes without saying that outstanding leadership, coaching and communication skills are essential as you’ll be providing expert advice on all aspects of service delivery, including clinical service delivery and quality improvement.
You will be a qualified nurse and have an excellent understanding of mental health services provided in the community including medicines management, along with proven and relevant experience of service delivery. You will have a good understanding of the health and social care field along with a successful track record of driving quality improvement including the ability to develop quality standards and manage internal audit systems.
