Clinical Champion

The RCGP is recruiting a Clinical Champion for the Genomics in Primary Care Project


  • From January 2018 to March 2018 (3 months)

Time commitment 

  • 5 Sessions per month


  • 5 Sessions per month, at £217.30 per session (1 session = 4 hours)

Background to the role

The Genomics in Primary Care Project is a collaboration between Health Education England and the Royal College of General Practitioners which aims to deliver some introductory resources of the current patient facing genomic services and the key information GPs and support staff need to know to be able to guide and support patients.

The primary objective is to produce materials across multiple platforms and identify locations where there are integrating genomics into primary care through patient information or new services. These resources will raise awareness amongst GPs and practice staff of the services offered to patients, to ensure that GP practices have the tools and materials they need to respond to any questions or concerns. This will empower patients to be able to decide on the genomics services that they are offered.

The Role

We are seeking to recruit a Clinical Champion to work with the Innovation team at the RCGP's Clinical Innovation and Research Centre (CIRC). The Clinical Champion will also work alongside Health Education England to help deliver the Genomics in Primary Care project. The role is not office-based but will require meetings up to once per month at the RCGP in London and/or by telephone.
The Clinical Champion will be responsible for designing content and driving the body of work. Delivery areas include the following:

  • Development of outline structure for a toolkit aimed at GPs and support staff. See Clinical Toolkits.
  • Develop content, identify panelists and chair one themed webinar 
  • Develop content, identify panelists and chair one themed podcast
  • Curating and developing content for a 'train the trainer pack' aimed at GPs and practice staff
  • Providing strategic guidance and advice to the project team 
  • Chairing steering group meeting (minimum of one throughout the 3 months)
  • Facilitate the creation of an RCGP Position Statement on Genomics

The ideal candidate will be a practising GP with up-to-date knowledge on current best practice in relation to genomics and genetics. They will have experience of commercial genomic and genetics services as well as national initiatives, either through supporting implementation or through advising patients. We are looking for a candidate with experience of producing materials to support a range of audiences (eg GP, nurses, administrative staff, patients, carers). They will have the relevant clinical and technical expertise required to deliver this body of work and act as a champion for the project, identifying and acting upon opportunities as they arise to promote the project.

How to apply

The RCGP aims to encourage and maintain the highest possible standards of patient care in general practice. We are looking to recruit a member of the RCGP who can work collaboratively to raise the profile and awareness of this work within both general practice and the wider primary care community.
