There are a number of exciting job opportunities as part of our plans to create an innovative new electronic patient record at East Cheshire NHS Trust and Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The roles include transformation, configuration, testing, training, management, and specific programme positions.

The Digital Clinical System (DCS) will replace current paper-based records with one comprehensive source of digital information. Our forward-thinking programme will bring huge benefits for staff and the communities we serve.

You can be an important part of these changes – by joining our growing, collaborative, multi-talented Digital Clinical System team. We're looking for dynamic candidates with experience and a passion for people, process and technology.
