RMS Clinical Chair Vacancy


The Referral Management Service (RMS) is currently looking for new Clinical Chair to lead the RMS and chair the RMS Steering Committee (formerly the RMS Board). The Steering Committee is responsible for overseeing and approving best practice referral guidelines to reduce referral variability across GP practices in the RMS patch.


The RMS is currently going through a period of change and is working operationally with Kernow Health CIC to improve referral quality by focussing on education and support within primary care.


The role of Chair involves developing and communicating the RMS strategic vision and objectives in a manner to ensure maximum engagement with GP practices. An awareness of current priorities and issues affecting the NHS, both on a local and national level, is essential to ensure the RMS strategy is aligned with wider CCG priorities. The role will also involve working closely with the Assistant General Manager and the Operational Clinical Lead to ensure the effective management of the RMS clinical team.


The successful candidate will need to be able to attend the RMS Steering Committee meetings which are held on the last Friday of the month. They will also have flexibility to represent the RMS at other internal and external meetings.
