Do you want to work for an organisation who has just received an overall rating of GOOD from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) with a rating of OUTSTANDING in care?
An exciting opportunity for a Non-Executive Director to help shape the future of our local healthcare delivery has arisen at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust.
Are you driven to developing our local healthcare to meet the needs of patients?
This post is a wonderful opportunity to work alongside the Chair, other Non-Executives and Executive Directors to inform, deliver and develop our approach to delivering high quality care to create “a great place to be cared for; a great place to work”. The post is also a great way to support your local community through the development of great local Health care.
Are you ready to lead pioneering change across a healthcare system?
Non-Executive Directors work alongside the Chairman and Executive Directors of the Foundation Trust Board to advise on the development of strategy and to oversee the performance of the Trust. They share responsibility with other Board Directors for the success of the Organisation using the available resources to deliver healthcare, bringing independent and objective judgement on issues of strategy, performance and resources.
The post will play a pivotal role in supporting the Board of Directors to assist the Trust in navigating through the development of a system-wide approach to integrated healthcare. As such, you must be able to contribute to our key challenges both within the Trust and in the wider health economy, building effective partnerships with key external stakeholders and ensuring that the Board effectively develops and oversees strategies that realise the collective ambitions for transforming and sustaining the health and care of our local citizens.
To succeed you will require substantial strategic and board-level leadership experience in a comparably complex organisation, with a track record of achievement in your chosen field. You will need the ability to network and to influence agendas at a local, and regional level, demonstrating a commitment to continuously improving standards of quality and experience, and recognising the dedication of staff and volunteers. You will also need high level governance and organisational skills gained in a regulated environment.
The successful candidate will require an understanding of topical issues affecting the NHS and knowledge/experience of the Transformation agenda across the Morecambe Bay footprint would be distinctly advantageous.
Remuneration will be £12,000 per annum for a minimum commitment of 2½ days per month. This may be during the working day or in the evening.
