The Society for Endocrinology congratulates Professor John Wass, Professor of Endocrinology at Oxford University and former president of the Society of Endocrinology, on his new appointment as GIRFT Clinical Lead for Endocrinology.

Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) is a national programme led by frontline clinicians, to help improve the quality of care within the NHS by identifying and reducing unwarranted variations in service and practice. It is a partnership between the NHS Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Trust (RNOH) and the Operational Productivity Directorate of NHS Improvement (NHSI).

Professor Tim Briggs, Chair of GIRFT and National Director of Clinical Quality and Efficiency at NHS Improvement, said: I am delighted to welcome our latest high calibre appointees - our clinical leads are all experts in their field with a detailed knowledge of the clinical services within their specialty.  The GIRFT programme has brought into sharp focus the differences in the way services are delivered and our clinical leads, who all understand the challenges, are committed to finding the solutions that will deliver sustainable, high quality services, improve patient outcomes and bring about efficiencies.”
