UK Chief Medical Officer

Salary dependent on experience | Hammersmith, London (Hybrid)

Introduction to Doccla

We’re Doccla, the virtual ward company. We provide patients and clinicians with the transformative power of remote patient monitoring. 

Our customers are Hospital Trusts and Community Services that we partner with to deliver virtual wards. With Doccla, patients can have their care stepped up from community services or they can be discharged from a hospital ward to a virtual one. Patients get to receive treatment in the comfort of their own homes whilst health services become more efficient. Unsurprisingly, both the number of trusts we work with and the number of patients we support is constantly growing.

Doccla is a young company with big aims and a lot of momentum. We're solving real problems for patients and health systems. And we’re looking for dedicated people with a passion for healthcare to join us.

Role and responsibilities. 

The role of the UK Chief Medical Officer (UK CMO) is to ensure high quality, patient-centered care by leading clinical and quality initiatives. This role includes strategic and management input across Doccla to the management, sales, customer service, and clinical teams. 

In this role you will:

  • Be responsible for clinical processes to ensure that Doccla delivers remote patient monitoring that is safe, high quality, patient-focused, outcomes-based, and cost-effective.
  • Lead Doccla’s UK medical team providing clinical expertise and guidance. 
  • Establish quantifiable metrics in performance to ensure clinical excellence is achieved and maintained. These metrics will also be used for quality and outcome reporting both internally and to customers.
  • Manage clinical quality assurance services including clinical improvement, measurement, and patient safety to ensure Doccla’s external accreditation and compliance with best practice. In addition you will plan, coordinate, and organise our accreditation activities.
  • Contribute to Doccla’s medical strategy and drive the development of Doccla's clinical pathways to keep Doccla at the cutting edge of virtual wards.

  • Lead the training of Doccla’s clinical staff regarding clinical resource management, appropriate document standards, quality issues, and quality improvement activities.
