The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has launched a new campaign to recruit 50 chief registrars across the UK for the 2017-18 period.
Open to junior doctors from ST5 or higher, the positions are for 12 months and will consist of 50-60 per cent clinical work and at least 40 per cent chief registrar work, including:
- bridging the gap between junior doctors and senior managers
- influencing patient outcomes
- improving fulfilment and motivation amongst staff
- improving organisational performance.
The role is supported by the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management and comes with a bespoke development and training programme.
President of the RCP, Professor Jane Dacre said:
“ Junior doctors are ideally positioned to introduce change that will make a real impact to real people. The role of chief registrar enables those on the shop floor to do just that. This scheme is an investment for trusts to deliver the best care for our patients, in innovative ways that empower our NHS workforce. “
Further information on the chief registrar role, and recruitment guidance are on the RCP's website.
