July edition of the Working Together Newsletter out now
The Working Together Partnership Vanguard is a partnership of the seven local acute Trusts, working together to strengthen each organisation’s ability to deliver safe, sustainable and local services.
The partnership issues a monthly newsletter with a number of short articles about how the Trusts are all working together to improve services for our patients.
The July edition can be found here and includes information about the decision that has been made about changes to the commissioning of children’s surgery, South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw being named as an Accountable Care System, a number of finance teams moving to a shared ledger, and a cross-Trust cyber security meeting that has taken place.
The Yorkshire and Humber Patient Safety Translational Research Centre is a new £3 million national centre for patient safety research funded by the NIHR. We are excited to advertise for three Senior Research Fellows to work within the Centre, a collaboration between the Bradford Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust and the Universities of Leeds and Bradford. The new Centre will:
- Draw on the knowledge and expertise of well-established networks of researchers, patients/carers, clinicians and industry partners to develop ideas (interventions) that address patient safety problems
- Enable and encourage the generation of ideas from a broad range of academic disciplines
- Test whether the interventions are acceptable and feasible in practice and whether they have the potential to save the NHS money
- Attract funding to take good ideas forward for further evaluation and/or implementation in the NHS
- Actively promote the research findings through partnerships with industry, national and international research groups, improvement and clinical networks, national policy makers and others
We will concentrate on four research themes (in brackets) that recognise:
1. The central role of patients and their carers (Patient Involvement in Patient Safety, led by Jane O’Hara, University of Leeds)
2. The importance of creating workplaces that people want to work in (Workforce engagement and wellbeing led by Rebecca Lawton, University of Leeds)
3. The safe use of medicines as a priority across healthcare settings (Safe use of medicines led by Alison Blenkinsopp, University of Bradford)
4. The exciting potential for digital technology to improve safety (Digital innovations for safety, led by John Wright, Bradford Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust)
We are seeking enthusiastic, highly organised and motivated researchers, with experience of qualitative and/or quantitative research, to contribute to themes 1, 2 and 4 above. The successful candidate will lead on one of these themes of work and, with guidance from the theme lead and support from other research staff and a patient panel, will carry out a programme of research that is nationally and internationally acclaimed. The appointed Research Fellows will be motivated to engage staff and patients/carers in delivering research that makes healthcare safer.
