Medical Statistician - Band 7 - C9318-24-0884

Cheltenham

Job summary

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) National Ophthalmology Database (NOD) conduct The National Cataract Audit which currently has data for more than 2.6 million cataract operations from 204 centres, and the National neovascular Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) Audit which has data for more than 190,000 eyes from 80 centres.

The audits follow an annual cycle of data submission, processing and analysis. Results are reported in annual reports and on the audit website (www.nodaudit.org.uk). Data is transferred to the Care Quality Commission, the Getting It Right First Time programme, and uploaded to www.data.gov.uk.

Secondary analyses focus on aspects of the treatment for longer time periods than an audit year, with analyses published in peer review journals and presented at relevant conferences and meetings.

The RCOphth NOD statistical team are based in Cheltenham General Hospital, with other team members located elsewhere. This requires the ability to work with colleagues in the same office and with team members in other locations.

Responsibilities include cleaning, formatting, combining, and analysis of data submitted to the RCOphth NOD, writing sections of annual reports and peer reviewed publications, creating data sets for uploading to the audit website, and for transfer to other reporting destinations.The role would ideally suit a statistician starting their career after completing study or someone within the first 3 years of their career.

Main duties of the job

The role requires the ability to process, clean, format and analyse data sets, including converting data from different systems into a common format, to communicate statistical ideas, data issues and interpretation of results to clinical colleagues, and to create the outputs for the suitable level of reporting, writing sections of the annual reports and peer reviewed publications, creating data sets for uploading to the RCOphth NOD website, and for transfer to other reporting destinations such as the CQC, GIRFT and www.data.gov.uk.Secondary analysis focus on aspects of AMD treatment or cataract surgery, with results presented in peer review publications and at appropriate ophthalmology or statistics meetings, this can involve presenting a poster or a talk.

This role requires the ability to work with others from differing professional backgrounds, and the ability to work independently at times is a must as clinical input is not always immediately available. The successful candidate will be based in an office and will use a computer, thus needs to be able to work in an office environment and be able to use a keyboard.Occasionally there are opportunities to assist Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust staff who require statistical support for their audit, service evaluation or research projects.
