A day as a clinical audit assistant

You work at your local NHS hospital, helping make sure national healthcare standards are met. You begin at 9am, and your first task is to read 50 patient surveys and record opinions about the hospital. You input the surveys onto your computer in a database you've created.

Next, you attend a team meeting, where senior auditing staff discuss using a new computer program to collect information about the hospital. You're asked to research the idea, and report your findings to the team at the next meeting.

Later, you're given information about new government healthcare standards to read, which you will need to use to measure your hospital's work against. Later, you categorise some new journals and file them in the library for other staff to use. You finish at 5pm after another challenging, interesting day at work.
