The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust - Chair

We are recruiting a Chair for The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust. This is a unique opportunity to help shape the future of Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust by sharing your talents and expertise to help transform the trust and make a positive difference to your community.


The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is the main provider of acute hospital services for around half a million people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales.

Their main service locations are the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) in Shrewsbury. The Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) opened in 1989 and is now the main centre for inpatient women and children’s services. The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital opened in 1977 and it became the main centre for acute and emergency surgery in 2012 and the Lingen Davies Centre opened in the same year.

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is a "teaching hospital" through their partnership with the Keele University School of Medicine. The trust benefits from strong partnerships with Staffordshire University in the training of nurses and allied health professionals.

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.

We particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented in chair and non-executive roles.
