University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire is located in the West Midlands and is home to one of the largest teaching hospitals in England. Our mission to Care, Achieve and Innovate is demonstrated in our reputation for innovation, teaching and research and high quality patient care. University Hospital in Coventry is one of the most modern healthcare facilities in Western Europe with £200 million of new medical and research equipment and a hospital that is at the forefront of digital imaging and technology.

We provide general acute hospital services to approximately 500,000 people from Coventry and Rugby and specialist hospital services to over one million people from Coventry, Warwickshire and beyond. The Trust has a revenue budget of approximately £473 million, we employ 5,639 staff, manage 1,380 beds and 32 operating theatres.

The Trust is made up of the following hospitals:
University Hospital Coventry 
Hospital of St Cross – Rugby 

Applications are invited from suitable candidates interested in joining our excellent team within the Haematology department of Coventry and Warwickshire Pathology Services (CWPS).

The Haematology service is a rapidly expanding part of the Coventry and Warwickshire Pathology Network, which is based on the hospital sites at Coventry (University Hospital), Nuneaton (George Eliot Hospital), Warwick (South Warwickshire Hospital) and Burton (Queen Elizabeth Hospital).  It offers a comprehensive range of Pathology services to a population of approximately 1.8 million Coventry and Warwickshire residents and has a close relationship with the Medical school at Warwick University. The network offers an excellent opportunity to those seeking employment in a modern, innovative and high-profile organisation. 

CWPS is one of the largest Pathology Networks within the UK, it is UKAS accredited as a Network and is hosted by UHCW which is the second busiest trauma centre within the UK. As a Network we are very forward thinking and innovative and are currently part way through a major procurement project which will see the development of a major Hub laboratory within our network supported by three essential service laboratories. It offers the prospect for great career development and future opportunities.

The Performance Section Manager’s role will cover all aspects of Haematology performance: financial performance, HR KPIs, Operational KPIs, service delivery and service development projects. This post is a relatively new role and as such will offer the successful candidate the opportunity to firmly establish, enhance and develop the role under the guidance of the Haematology Network manager. The Performance Section Manager will play a key role in the Hub lab development, work flow projects and innovative service developments and annual service review.

The successful candidate must be able to work well as part of the Haematology Management Team, be innovative, seek constant service improvement, support their management team colleagues in service provision, and will be expected to deputise for the Haematology Manager on when required.
