The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Become a Leeds Teaching Hospitals QI Partner

Partners will be the people who help Leeds Teaching Hospitals become the best place for Patient Care. Can you help us make that happen?

We are expanding our initiative to involve the public in our projects where we review services to make them work better for patients, public and carers. We are seeking to recruit people as core members of the team, working alongside nurses, healthcare professionals and doctors. Our main areas of involvement are in our patient safety and Quality Improvement (QI) work. We are looking for people who are able to consider our work from a public perspective and who will ask how our plans meet the needs of our patients.  

Roles are voluntary, however, expenses are covered and a small allowance can be claimed for use of home office equipment. 

I'm Interested! How Do I Apply?

We would welcome applications from all our current and/or former patients, as well as:

  • Carers
  • Those under 40 with experience of healthcare
  • LGBTQ+ people
  • BAME communities 
  • Those wanting experience of NHS Safety Work
  • Cancer Patients (current or former) and those close to them

Further details about the role is in the attached role description above. 

At this time, our meetings are held virtually, therefore, we need people who are able to use MS Teams or be willing to learn (training can be provided).
