Job Overview

As a phase 4 winner of Round 2 AI in Health and Care Awards there is an opportunity to join this passionate and growing company. 

The CSO will be responsible for undertaking clinical risk management activities, assessing clinical risk and maintaining clinical risk management documentation according to DCB 0129 for the growing tele dermatology platform and other related products. This is within an already established clinical risk management system. 

The primary focus of this role is for Clinical Safety but aspects of the role will also involve related activities such as supporting or being responsible for our accompanying documentation from a clinical / safety perspective. These may include our respective user manuals and training material.

The role will not specifically include risk assessments of the company’s Software as a Medical Device (AI) products. However the AI algorithms do integrate with the tele dermatology platform so there will be some joint working between the digital health platform and AI clinical risk management activities and stakeholders.
