Two Non-Executive Directors

Remuneration from £13,400 per annum for a minimum of 3 days per month

Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust is a high performing acute trust serving a population of 300,000 across 5 sites based in central and west Lancashire. We currently employ 5000 staff and invest around £300 million each year in a broad range of highly regarded general and specialist acute services including a tertiary specialist orthopaedic service based at the renowned Wrightington Hospital site, where Sir John Charnley conducted the world’s first hip implant operation 50 years ago.

We are proud of our impressive track record over recent years including winning HSJ ‘Provider Trust of the Year’ 2014 and are dedicated to providing the best possible healthcare for the population we serve. We are rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission and our recent and numerous awards include the following:-

  • Chief Executive highly commended in HSJ Patient Safety Awards for board leadership
  • Procurement department number 1 in the NHS
  • Cleanest hospital in the UK for third year running by PLACE scores
  • Won CIPD People Management Award for Best Digital Initiative in HR/Learning and Development

We are committed to building on our strengths to become the first choice healthcare provider for our communities and are focused on exceptional customer service through the delivery of integrated, seamless, continuous pathways of care, enabled by innovation and leading edge technology. Underpinning this commitment are our values and fundamental belief that our patients must be at the heart of everything we do.

We are now seeking to appoint two Non-Executive Directors who have the experience and ability to contribute to the work of a unitary Board operating in a very challenging and regulated environment. For the first role you will ideally be clinically/medically qualified and have experience of working within a primary care setting whilst the second role requires someone with exceptional stakeholder engagement experience and the ability to demonstrate that s/he can forge positive relationships and partnerships both internally and externally.

For an informal and confidential discussion about either role or to request an information pack with details of how to apply, please contact our retained consultant, Diane Charnock on 07988 653669 or email

Closing date for applications is Friday 15th December.

Preliminary interviews will take place w/c 8th January 2018

Final interviews 1st February 2018
