Exciting opportunities at the College

A range of exciting opportunities are coming up for members interested in working with the College.

They include:

  • becoming the new Clinical and Strategic Director working with our College Centre for Quality Improvement
  • taking the new role of Presidential Lead for Recruitment and helping our drive to get more people to choose psychiatry, and
  • working on the CPD Advisory Board and guiding the College’s delivery of online training modules.

The College Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI) is currently looking for a new Clinical and Strategic Director. The CCQI works with mental health services to improve the standard of care that people with mental health needs receive.

The Centre runs 27 quality networks and accreditation programmes that work with over 1550 mental health services around the UK. The networks develop service standards and help services to work towards meeting them. The CCQI also runs two national audits on behalf of NHS England and the Welsh Government that are focused on dementia and psychosis.

The Clinical and Strategic Director is the clinical lead for this programme of work and is an exciting opportunity if you are interested in improving services nationally.
