Doing my job, improving my job, and improving how other people are able to do their job is important to me.
In my clinical leadership role, there are times when things need to be done in new ways to get better outcomes. Working “above the line” and “going the extra mile” are qualities I try to role model, and in my experience, working in this way has led to the best improvements and changes in practice – all leading to my passion: improved care for patients. My 2014 pledge helps me to reflect on the little things that made a difference.
My “day job” is Head of Medicines Management for Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust. This involves leading, providing and developing the strategic direction for Medicines Management for Leeds Community Health Services in accordance with national and local priorities.
My role includes providing specialist knowledge and expertise regarding the safe and effective management of medicines, interpreting national strategy and policy around the use of medicines and leading local implementation.
Below are some of the examples of things I have done during 2014 that were “not in my day job”…
