GIRFT - Intensive and Critical Care Lead Appointment

20 July 2017

The Faculty welcome the appointment of Dr Anna Batchelor, our Immediate Past Dean and the current Chair of the Critical Care Leadership Forum, as the Intensive and Critical Care Lead for Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT).

GIRFT brings together leading NHS clinicians to lead in depth specialty reviews with the aim of improving quality and reducing unwanted variation.  The Faculty look forward to working with Dr Batchelor and the GIRFT initiative over this two year project.

Dr Batchelor said: “I am really excited to be working with the GIRFT team. I think we are already a long way down the road of GIRFT in ICM but there is always more to do. I look forward to working with colleagues in units around the country and those in other ‘sharp end’ specialties to make things more efficient, effective and better for our patients.”
