Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:
Medical Examiner 2 part-time posts 2 year fixed term In 2007, in response to the recommendations of the Shipman Inquiry, the Department of Health DH called for reform of the current death certification process. Based upon the inquiry’s findings, the DH proposed that a new role of Medical Examiner be established within healthcare environments. In 2017, A publication, ‘Learning from Deaths Guidance’, stipulated that Trusts should be rigorous in their investigation of those patient deaths determined by certain criteria and / or by concerns raised by relatives. West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust is seeking to employ two part-time Medical Examiners, for a fixed term period of two years in the first instance. The Medical Examiners will be senior doctors who will verify clinical information on Medical Certificates of Cause of Death MCCDs. They will also ensure appropriate referrals to the Coroner and ensure accuracy and consistency of MCCD content. They will be responsible for the screening of all inpatient deaths for onward review by other health care professionals trained in Structured Judgement Review and they will be a point of contact for bereaved family members. The successful applicants will be Consultant grade or General Practitioner equivalent, with General Medical Council registration. They will have up to date medical knowledge of medical conditions, treatments and medicines and detailed knowledge of legislation and processes regarding coroners and death certification. Excellent communication, judgement and leadership skills are essential. For further information please contact Ms Debbie Elliott on is 01923 438275.
