Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust and Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust – Chair in Common

Chair in Common - Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust and Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

This is a unique opportunity to undertake this leadership role across acute and community services at both Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (KHFT) and Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust (HRCH).

Both trusts have already been working closely together to achieve greater alignment and you will play a critical part in delivering high quality and outstanding integrated health services and be an indispensable partner within the communities and systems they serve.

The Trusts’ individual identities are important, and they are something special that they need to cherish and enhance, while also forging collaborative work to improve outcomes for the people they serve. They must preserve the things that make them strong in terms of the quality of services that they deliver. Both HRCH & KHFT are high performing trusts and they have demonstrated the importance and benefits of system and place-based working and the resilience and outcomes that can be achieved through a coordinated sharing of objectives, a pooling of resources and a sense of common purpose.

This is a fantastic opportunity to lead each Board, as well as the KHFT Council of Governors, and we are seeking an exceptional individual with the personal reputation, profile and professional credentials to lead the organisations through what will be one of the most exciting and significant periods of their development. You will be committed to overseeing the development and support of their fantastic staff at both Trusts, and you will need to be able to forge strong and sustainable relationships across their ICS with the ability to develop and maintain a close working relationship with our national and regional system partners, bringing the best care to the people of Kingston, Hounslow, Richmond and Surrey Downs and across NW and SW London and putting them at the heart of everything they do.

The best boards are those that reflect the workforce and communities they serve. We particularly welcome applications from women, people from local black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, and people with disabilities, who we know are all under-represented in these important roles.
