A new National Child Mortality Database (NCMD) that aims to reduce premature mortality by analysing data on all deaths in children in England, aged between birth and their 18th birthday, has been announced by University of Bristol.
The database is funded initially for four years and commissioned by NHS England and the Health Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP). The team will work closely with Child Death Overview Panels (CDOPs) which review all child deaths in England. The data collected will be analysed and used to inform strategic improvements in health and social care for children in England and to help health and social care providers to learn about how they can reduce child deaths.
This position will form part of the team that administrates the National Child Mortality Database. The successful candidate must be well organised with good communication skills and a high level of attention to detail.
Confidentiality must be maintained at all times and the post-holder must be able to deal sensitively with information relating to child deaths. Experience of prioritising multiple tasks and dealing with changing priorities will be useful.
