At East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust our vision is to be widely recognised for providing safe, personal and effective care. We currently provide high quality services and treat over 600,000 people across East Lancashire and the surrounding area. We employ over 8,000 staff, many of whom are internationally renowned and have won awards for their work.
Due to service expansion, an exciting opportunity for a motivated and enthusiastic Information Analyst has arisen within the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Team. The service is progressing towards a robust and comprehensive service; which allows us the opportunity to utilise information and communication technology to monitor and evaluate our work with children, young people and their families, in line with the wider NHS and IT developments.
