BECOME A LEAD REVIEWER FOR THE QUALITY NETWORK FOR COMMUNITY CAMHS

QNCC is now looking for dynamic and proactive CAMH professionals to get involved in our work:

Lead Reviewers
(honorary contract, travel expenses covered)

The successful candidates will attend on-site visits on behalf of the project team, working with staff and service users to improve community CAMHS. They will also provide written summaries of the visits to the project team, which will be largely produced on the day of the visit. This is an ideal post for someone looking to develop their knowledge of quality improvement.

The post is unpaid but lead reviewers would have an honorary contract with the Royal College of Psychiatrists and receive a free place at the QNCC annual forum.  The position would last one year and lead reviewers would be expected to attend and lead a minimum of two QNCC reviews within that time. Training is provided. Please download a copy of the job description and person specification.

Interested candidates should complete and return the enclosed application forum and a CV to rbarrett@cru.rcpsych.ac.uk explaining why they would like to become a QNCC lead reviewer and how they meet the core competencies. If you would like to discuss the role in more detail, please contact me.

The closing date for applications is Friday 25 March 2011, and training will be held on Friday 15 April 2010 in London.

To apply, please download the application form.

PLEASE NOTE
that other QNCC members with appropriate experience will still be able to lead reviews but the purpose of this scheme is to develop a regular bank of lead reviewers who will provide consistency across reviews.
