About the role
This post offers a unique role within the multidisciplinary Project Team of The National Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma Audit. You will work in a vibrant audit and research environment, putting you at the heart of a national team that plays a key role in improving the care that patients with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma receive in England and Wales. It will provide you with the opportunity to contribute to high-profile peer-reviewed papers, which could lead to obtaining a PhD. The PhD research will aim to strengthen the relevance and robustness of the Audit’s outputs. It will study determinants of variation in practice and outcomes, develop methods for quality assessment, and evaluate the impact of quality improvement initiatives.
You will be working in partnership with senior clinicians, representing the haematological and oncological clinical communities in England and Wales, including the British Society for Haematology (BSH), and senior statisticians and methodologists based at LSHTM.
The Audit is part of the National Cancer Audit Collaborating Centre (NATCAN). NATCAN is a new national centre of excellence to strengthen NHS cancer services by looking at treatments and patient outcomes across the NHS in England and Wales. NATCAN is the largest centre evaluating cancer services in the UK, hosting nine national cancer audits, with 20 staff members, employed at the RCS or the LSTHM, from a wide range of backgrounds (medicine, statistics, epidemiology, data science, quality improvement, project management).
The successful candidate will help to deliver a new national audit in Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and carry out research whilst developing advanced analysis and research skills. The Audit uses very rich linked national datasets which include all newly diagnosed patients with bowel cancer in the NHS in England and Wales. An exciting innovation is that NATCAN will receive quarterly cancer data updates. This will reduce the time lag between patients receiving care and audit feedback to six months, which will inform quality improvement initiatives that aim “to close the audit cycle”.
