Do you want to be part of a supportive and inclusive team focussed on improving health care quality and safety?

Do you want to demonstrate your skills and develop them further, whilst making a difference in patient care?

We have a band 7 senior research fellow post available within our small and supportive Improvement Science team of the NIHR Yorkshire and Humber Applied Research Collaboration (NIHR YHARC). The YHARC is one of 15 ARCs across the country. ARCs foster collaboration between NHS, social care, third sector and industry organisations, and leading universities. The aim is to transform services, improve peoples’ health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities. Our research team is all about improving the quality and safety of health and social care services. Our team has expertise in health services research, improvement and behavioural science and the development and evaluation of complex interventions. We work with the other themes within the NIHR YHARC: older people, healthy childhood, mental health and urgent care to support them to deliver work that addresses barriers to implementation. We also have an objective to develop the science of improvement across our projects, working with other ARCs to do so. We are seeking an experienced health or care services researcher with expertise in patient safety, implementation or improvement science.

You will join our team, which sits within a wider research network: the Yorkshire Quality and Safety Research group (https://yqsr.org/). This successful group of researchers has established a national and international reputation for working collaboratively across institutions and disciplines to deliver research that makes healthcare safer. The group comprises researchers and leading academics from the Universities of Leeds, York and Bradford teamed with clinicians and managers from the Yorkshire and Humber health community, with the ultimate aim of making a real impact on the way health services are delivered. We are all part of the Bradford Institute for Health Research. This post, therefore, provides a great opportunity to also collaborate with colleagues in these teams  and to further develop your research career.

Examples of our current projects and activities include:

  • A scoping review of the benefits for health care staff of involvement in applied health services research.
  • A qualitative study exploring transfer of care decisions between care homes and emergency care departments.
  • Development of a short online improvement science introductory course
  • The Improvement Science snapshot series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLaUHM9a-DQN00r7YmguFvwUS68zU7H5Q5

This is a great time to join the team, with the opportunity to shape the next phase of research projects that we take on, depending on your interests. Whatever the project, critical to the role will be an inclusive approach to engaging with patients and clinicians to optimise study design, data collection, and the impact of your findings.

We welcome contact from interested applicants. So, if you would like to know more about these roles, please contact the Improvement Science Programme Manager, Dr Andria Hanbury: andria.hanbury@bthft.nhs.uk

We can offer staff gymnasiums on both hospital sites, excellent pension scheme and advice on childcare.

Closing Date:                           07.06.23            (This date may change dependent on the response)
