NHS England recruiting for armed forces CRG

NHS England recruiting for armed forces CRG

|

A recruitment drive for the latest addition to NHS England’s Clinical Reference Group (CRG) structure has been launched.

The Armed Forces CRG will provide clinical advice to NHS England in support of its commissioning decisions regarding serving armed forces personnel, their families, mobilised reservists and veterans. 

This CRG also aims to review and support the integration of care pathways between Ministry of Defence and NHS medical services so that patients experience a “seamless transition”.

Professor Keith Willett, director for acute episodes of care at NHS England, emphasised that the organisation is keen for all decisions to be clinically met while meeting the needs of patients. 

He said: “We have particularly identified the armed forces population as one where we need to provide consistent, high quality services. 

“We are therefore looking to recruit individuals who have a high level of credibility with their peers, as well as a degree of empathy with this population”.

Each of the CRGs is made up of clinicians and commissioners, as well as patient and carer members. 

The Armed Forces CRG is recruiting to a number of posts, but is especially keen to receive applications from those who are able to demonstrate experience within the armed forces community, for example ex-serving personnel from the regular or reserve forces, and from those who have treated service families.

Applications for patient/carer representatives on the Armed Forces CRG will take place later in the summer.
