Since 2010 Dr Tim Taylor has been a Consultant Neuroradiologist at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, working as part of a specialist consultant-led team. He is also Medical Director of EMRAD, a group of seven acute trusts in the East Midlands working collaboratively to create a new shared radiology IT system. He is responsible for developing and reviewing clinical requirements and specifications, identifying and managing clinical risks, and ensuring that the EMRAD system meets the needs of the trusts. He is also the clinical figurehead for the consortium at a regional, national and international level.
Part of Tim’s role at EMRAD is to engage, enthuse and coordinate clinicians and senior leaders in the seven NHS trusts to work collaboratively and drive the project forward. He is looking forward to having the opportunity, through GenerationQ, to learn from and work with peers from diverse areas in the health care sector, and to gain a greater understanding of ‘the concepts of contextual and technical leadership, along with clear transferrable knowledge and skills. This will empower me to discharge these duties with increased confidence.’
Tim’s ambition is to lead the development of a cross-region radiology reporting network, based around the underlying EMRAD technical system, which he hopes GenerationQ will help him deliver: ‘The GenerationQ programme will empower me to deliver this improvement successfully and in a manner that engenders confidence in other NHS organisations to develop similar improvements, to the benefit of colleagues and patients within the wider NHS.’
