Members - Dumfries and Galloway NHS

Reference: 1386
Remuneration: £8,251 per annum
Location: Dumfries & Galloway
Closing date: Dumfries and Galloway NHS09 February 2018 at midnight

If you are looking for a rewarding and worthwhile opportunity, we would like to hear from you. Applications are invited from a wide range of people who have an interest in public service and are committed to the NHS in Scotland. Please pass on details of these opportunities to anyone else you think may be interested.

NHS Dumfries and Galloway is responsible for meeting the health and care needs and improving the health and wellbeing of around 147,000 people living in a largely rural setting across some 2,500 square miles stretching from Langholm in the east of the region through to Stranraer in the west of the region.

NHS Dumfries and Galloway is looking for two new members to join its Board. As a non-executive member of the Board, you will be expected to play a central role in guiding the strategies which address the health and social care priorities and care needs of the resident population and monitor the performance of the Board in delivering these. You will be offered the training you need to make a strong contribution.

For these posts, you must be able to demonstrate:

  • an understanding of the challenges facing the delivery of health and social care services in the area served by the Board;
  • an ability to communicate effectively.
  • an ability to build effective relationships with stakeholders who have competing interests;
  • an ability to influence decision making and challenge constructively
  • an ability to contribute to ‘bigger picture' (eg strategic) thinking; and
  • an ability to analyse and review complex issues.

For one of the posts, it would be desirable, but not essential to appoint someone with finance experience who has provided demonstrable leadership in dealing with levels of financial complexity commensurate with the scale of NHS Dumfries and Galloway.

You do not need to be an expert in health or have previous experience of being on a Board. We are looking for people who have the capacity and commitment to grow into the role, to develop their skills and to learn new skills they may require.

Scottish Ministers particularly welcome applications from groups currently under-represented on the Boards of Scotland's public bodies, such as women, disabled people, ethnic minorities and people aged under 50.

For more specific detail of the particular requirements of the roles, please see the the person specification, which forms part of the application pack. Also included in the pack is more detailed information about NHS Dumfries and Galloway and its role within NHS Scotland.

  • Remuneration: £8,251 per annum (non-pensionable) is payable. You will also receive reimbursement for all reasonable travel and subsistence costs and any reasonable dependant-carer expenses incurred whilst undertaking Board duties and for support required to help you carry out your duties effectively.
  • Time commitment: The time commitment will vary week to week, but on average the role will take up around 8 hours per week. This time will be a mix of daytime Board meetings, committee meetings, reading documents and attending stakeholder events. You should also demonstrate an adequate degree of flexibility to attend at a greater frequency subject to the Board's ongoing business needs.
  • Appointment details: The term of appointment will be for up to 4 years. When a term comes to an end, the skills the board requires will be reassessed. If you satisfy the requirements of the new person specification at that time, and there is evidence of your effective performance, Scottish Ministers may consider reappointing you for a further term. A non-executive member's total period of appointment will not exceed eight years.
  • Location: Meetings of the Board will normally be held in Dumfries. Meetings for other committees and the Integration Joint Board are held across the Dumfries and Galloway region.
  • Interviews: It is expected that interviews will be held on 28th and 29th of March in Dumfries.
  • Further information: If you would like to find out more about the role, you are welcome to contact the Board Chair, Philip Jones, by calling Linda McKie, Executive Assistant to the Chair on 01387 272743 or by emailing linda.mckie@nhs.net.

For full information on the appointments, please read the Application Information Pack accessed via the link below.

Non-executive Director - Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust

L1420

Essential Criteria

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services.

NHS boards play a key role in shaping the strategy, vision and purpose of an organisation. They hold the organisation to account for the delivery of strategy and ensure value for money. Candidates will need to demonstrate experience of working at a strategic level.

We are looking for an individual who can demonstrate the background, experience and understanding that will equip them to work at Board level in an NHS trust. This is a large community trust working in a complex environment and this opportunity is designed for someone who already has considerable experience of working as a non-executive or trustee in a sizeable organisation. Whilst that experience need not be in the NHS, candidates need to have significant experience in an equivalent position.

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit. We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities they serve and that understand the breadth of public, patient, carer and stakeholder engagement required to deliver inclusive community based services. We are looking for an individual who can join colleagues to support a provider Board that is working for integrated and inclusive services.

We particularly welcome applications from people from the black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented on Boards. All NHS boards are working to achieve and maintain a gender balance of at least 50:50.

As part of CLCH’s desire to address under-representation at board level, the trust has created the role of Associate Non-Executive Director to provide a developmental opportunity.

You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

  • work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
  • hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust

All non-executive directors must champion the standards of public life – by upholding the highest standards of conduct and displaying the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.

As a future NHS leader, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level role. These are outlined in the NHS Leadership Academy’s Healthcare Leadership Model.
