The Lindsay Stewart Centre for Audit and Clinical Informatics at the RCOG is seeking to appoint a methodologist/audit lead to coordinate the development and implementation of the HQIP-funded National Maternity and Perinatal Audit.

This is a unique opportunity to work on a large-scale project within the O&G specialty, to gain exposure to both clinical and academic settings, and to develop a portfolio of methodological and applied health services research.

We are seeking candidates with methodological expertise in addition to experience of project management to coordinate and oversee this exciting project. A postgraduate 
degree (MSc or equivalent) in health services is required or a clinical qualification (medical or midwifery). A PhD is desirable.

The National Maternity and Perinatal Audit will evaluate the quality of care received by women and newborns cared for by hospital services in England, Wales and Scotland. Its aim is to assess the organisation of maternity services as well as to provide timely, high quality data that compares the care provided and outcomes achieved by providers of maternity care across a range of audit measures.

This post will be based in the Lindsay Stewart Centre for Audit and Clinical Informatics at the RCOG and also have an honorary appointment at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The Centre’s remit is to support quality improvement within the specialty by carrying out high-quality national audits and developing and publishing national performance indicators for obstetrics and gynaecology.

The post is offered full-time for 3 years, with a possibility of extension. The salary will be between £41,034 and £53,434 per annum, depending on qualifications and experience.
