Tayside NHS Board – Members

Members - Tayside NHS Board

Reference: 3881
Remuneration: £17,684 per annum
Location: Tayside
Closing date: 08 February 2021 at midday

This is an exciting time of transformational change for NHS Tayside, and this is your chance to take on a rewarding and worthwhile opportunity and be part of the team who are designing and delivering changes which are improving performance and are developing the capability and capacity to return NHS Tayside to its place as one of the most innovative and best performing Health Boards in the UK.

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 Tayside is responsible for meeting the health needs and improving the health and wellbeing of over 400,000 people living in Tayside, and provides a comprehensive range of primary, community-based and acute hospital services for the populations of Angus, Dundee City and Perth & Kinross.

NHS Tayside is looking for three new members to join its Board.  As a non-executive member of this Board, you will have a key role in supporting the delivery of the organisation’s strategic direction in addition to contributing to scrutinising performance, and discharging governance and accountability functions.  All successful candidates will be required to sit on one of the local Integration Joint Boards (IJB).

NHS Scotland’s values are at the heart of everything that this organisation does. These values, as outlined in the Everyone Matters: 2020 Workforce Vision, are: care and compassion; dignity and respect; openness, honesty and responsibility; and, quality and teamwork, and they guide the work of the Board in all that it does.  As a member of the Board, you will not only need to have the right skills, knowledge and experience for the role, but also be able to demonstrate behaviour aligned to these values.

For one of these positions, NHS Tayside are looking for an individual who has relevant clinical or health work experience.

In addition to this requirement and the values highlighted above, you must also be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Knowledge about, or connection to, health and/or social care services in the area served by the Board
  • Ability to influence decision making, work collaboratively and challenge constructively
  • Analysis and decision making
  • Longer term planning / Seeing the bigger picture

Although not essential for any of the roles, for two posts it would be helpful to the Board at this time if you had any of the following:

  • Relevant experience of the voluntary sector; public health; or mental health

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 develop their skills and to learn new skills they may require.  You will be offered the training you need to make a strong contribution.

We value very highly the benefits of having different experience and points of view on our Boards.  Scottish Ministers particularly welcome applications from people with protected characteristics that are currently under-represented on The Board of Tayside NHS, such as: disabled people, LGBTI+ people, those from black and minority ethnic communities 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 Tayside NHS and its role within NHS Scotland.

  • Remuneration:   £17,684 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 16 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 in the same role will not exceed eight years.
  • Location:  Under normal circumstances, meetings of the Board will be held in Ninewells Hospital.  However, due to Coronavirus the majority of meetings are being held via Microsoft Teams.  It is expected that the majority of the work can be carried out at your home. (Going forward, the work will be a blend of virtual and physical meetings.)
  • Interviews:  We are planning for interviews to be held online on 2nd - 4th March 2021.  We will conduct the interviews remotely by MS Teams video link.  If Public Health guidance permits face to face interviews at that time, we may be able to consider these as an alternative if required by a candidate.
  • Further information:  If you would like to discuss these opportunities in more detail, you are welcome to contact the Chair, Lorna Birse-Stewart, or Trudy McLeay, one of our senior Non-Executive Members, by calling on 01382 740708; or by emailing chairman.tayside@nhs.scot

Completed applications must be received on or before midday on Monday 8th February 2021.

Appointments to Tayside NHS Board are regulated by the Ethical Standards Commissioner.

Appointed on merit; committed to diversity and equality.

  • Contribute to setting, monitoring and challenging the strategic direction of AWE plc, by assisting in developing key strategic objectives, overseeing their achievement and ensuring they remain appropriate;
  • Contribute to open and honest debate at Board meetings and provide constructive challenge to the executive decisions, adding diversity of thought and industry experience to the Board;
  • Promote the long-term success of AWE plc and ensure the accountability of AWE plc, scrutinising the performance of management in meeting agreed goals and objectives, and monitoring the reporting of performance;
  • Uphold high standards of integrity and probity, supporting the Chair and executive directors by seeking to instil the appropriate culture, values and behaviours in the boardroom and beyond;

  • Focussed on results and a willingness to look for solutions combined with a focus on targeted performance measurement;
  • Pragmatic approach, including an ability to adapt quickly to fast moving situations;
  • Clear and effective influencing and communication skills, including an ability to operate effectively at Board level, challenging an executive effectively but constructively, and communicating with a wide range of audiences;
  • An open mind with the courage to think independently and strategically, and an ability to effectively analyse complex issues while driving tangible delivery/change;
  • Team working and collaboration skills, including an ability to work together with other executives and non-executives in a low ego environment to solve collective problems; and
  • Capacity to carry out this role effectively, with a commitment to AWE’s mission, and desire to add real value to the Board and the business.

Appointees may be asked to chair various sub committees including Audit & Risk, Remuneration and Projects & Programmes. One appointee will become the Senior Independent Director.
