Who the specialist will work with Executive Team Chief Executive Director of Therapies Head of IM&T
What the specialist will work on Improving engagement between the IT department and the wider clinical workforce has been identified as an imperative. Work done over the past year, including the appointment of an Assistant Medical Director for Information Management & Technology, has sought to engage clinicians in IT work and has had some success. The IT department itself recognises the challenges of delivering a broad agenda at pace, and in a financially constrained climate. Essential to meet these challenges will be the need to develop clear strategies for prioritising transformation work, balanced again the routine work of the department and its commitment to established projects.
