Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust - Advisor to the Board

We are recruiting an Advisor to the Board (Patient Experience) for Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust.

This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.


The opportunity

We are recruiting an Advisor (Patient Experience) to the Trust Board for Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your experience and insight to make a positive difference to the experience of people in your community who use the trust's services.

The Associate non-executive director role is used successfully in the NHS to support Board succession strategy and achieving a balance of Board level skills. Although not legally a member of the Board and does not participate in any formal vote, the individual is an integral member of the wider Board team-comprising executive and non-executive roles and attending Board and key committee meetings as required.

We are also recruiting two non-executive directors. Please see vacancy reference L1422 for further information.

Essential criteria

You will need to be either a current patient of the Trust (or their carer), or to have been a patient of the Trust in the last three years

Applicants should live in or have strong connections with the area served by the Trust (currently the London Boroughs of Lewisham, Greenwich, Bexley and Bromley). We will accept applications from those with the appropriate experience living in the surrounding areas.

Applicants for this post must not be employees of LGT, current or previous healthcare professionals, or members or employees of any health related organisation or lobby group.

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

  • work alongside non-executive and executive colleagues as an adviser to the board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills, and challenge to strategy development
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust

All Board Advisers 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.

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
