About Us

We have a National Professional Advisor (Community Healthcare) role available 2 days per week on a fixed-term basis

About the Care Quality Commission

CQC is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. We make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and we encourage care services to improve. We monitor, inspect and regulate services to ensure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and we publish what we find to help people choose care.

Our approach

Our specific purpose of developing a new model of inspection is to make sure all services provide all people with safe, effective, compassionate, high quality care, and to encourage services to improve. We will do this by:

*   Adopting a risk based approach to inspection which includes responding to concerns, and taking enforcement action when providers breach fundamental standards

*   Working with our partners to share knowledge, information, and findings from our inspection activity which will encourage improvement

*  Having a robust registration process for all health and care providers

*  Having an authoritative voice commenting on the quality of health and care services where we think we will have the biggest impact using a themed approach

*  Developing an approach for the regulation of integrated care

About the role

We are looking to recruit a credible and experienced clinician to work with us as we develop our methodology for assessing the quality of services within community healthcare settings.  The role will provide an excellent opportunity for you to work with colleagues and drive our ambition to foster improvement in care throughout our regulated community.

The role of the NPA will be to work with colleagues in refining our methodology, providing support to the regional inspection teams and liaising with the provider community.  You will be available to offer expert opinion and act as a resource across the hospitals directorate on a wide range of issues relating to the assessment of well-led. 

Working with the Deputy Chief Inspector, the post holder will lead and drive the regulatory model for Hospitals in England, and lead stakeholder involvement with external organisations such as, but not limited to, The Department of Health, Public Health England, NHS England, NHS Improvement, other national regulators and local stakeholders including LMCs and CCGs

Ideally you should have current or recent experience of working at a senior level within community health services and be recognised as a credible and respected clinician. 

This is a great opportunity for someone to influence how CQC inspects and rates community services  as well as playing a key role in driving improvement across the sector.    

Closing date 11.45pm at 24th October 2017
