My years of experience in various care settings within the National Health Service were fundamental to my personal and professional development. The position of Registered Manager in a Private Nursing Home and later Regional Operations Manager also within the Independent Sector added a further dimension to my personal and professional development and equipped me with a broad depth of knowledge, skills and experience. The excellent developmental opportunities and experience gained have made me acutely aware of the importance of roles of responsibility, roles of accountability, corporate responsibility and governance. As a Regional Operations Manager I had a holistic overview of the delivery of care from strategic and business planning to the implementation of the governance initiatives necessary to ensure the delivery of service and care which focused on quality and safety. These experiences and skills I have found to be transferable and applicable in my current position as Registration and Inspection officer. My appointment as a professional member to NIPEC Council and my involvement as a member of a regional team which conducted a review of the In-service Education Consortia in Northern Ireland in 2003 has provided opportunities to participate in the development, implementation, evaluation and review of policy and practice relating to nursing and midwifery at a strategic level. Experience gained has enhanced my understanding and appreciation of the complexities involved in delivering a Health and Personal Social Services which is fit for purpose.
Consider what it is you wish to get from the job and measure this against the main responsibilities of the job. Reflect upon the knowledge and skills you can bring to the job and remember that the job is difficult and complex and its importance within the quality agenda is not one to be undervalued. My final piece of advice is that the role of Registration and Inspection Officer places you in a pivotal position to influence the quality of care and service being delivered to drive improvement. This role will call on you day and daily to make judgements, offer advice and support and, when necessary, trigger enforcement. Maintenance of communication networks with professional colleagues across the HPSS, Independent and voluntary sectors is essential.
