Join RCOphth expert review team to help organisations improve their services
1 November 2017
The RCOphth is recruiting for health/clinical professionals as members of the External Review Team which carries out reviews, as requested from healthcare organisations, who require independent external advice or support to deal with issues and concerns; each review is unique. We are seeking new reviewers to meet increased demand for this service.
The reviews are ophthalmologist-led and the primary purpose is to ensure patient safety and improve patient care. Review teams are often multidisciplinary (including allied health professionals such as nurses, orthoptists, optometrists, managers) and may include a lay reviewer.
‘Conducting Service Reviews has been a privilege and a personal learning experience each time’ Bernard Chang, Chair of the External Review Group
‘The objective, balanced, professional and discrete manner in which the team conducted their process was very helpful in identifying key issues and focussing the attention and further support mechanisms within the trust…. The team here are now facing the future with a renewed sense of team-spirit and cohesion, a more effective clinical environment for our patients, and a more enjoyable place to work for our staff’ Feedback from Clinical Lead.
