Non Executive Directors - Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
An opportunity to shape healthcare services in Dorset
Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is the main provider of acute hospital care to the largely rural communities of North and West Dorset, Weymouth and Portland. A high performing Trust, services are provided in GP surgeries, schools, residential homes, people’s own homes, Dorset County Hospital and five community hospitals, by a dedicated workforce of 3,000 employees.
As the NHS undergoes unprecedented change, the Trust is seeking innovative ways to ensure the continued provision of safe and sustainable services, and by revolutionising how we work with our partners, that these services are provided at the right time and in the right place for patients. At this time of huge opportunity and challenge the Trust is looking to appoint two new non-executive directors one of whom will come from a clinical background, to join the ambitious, unitary Board. As a Non Executive Director you will:
- Work with fellow directors to set the Trust’s strategic aims, ensuring these are delivered through holding executive directors to account and enhancing public and stakeholder confidence;
- Provide independent judgement and advice, working with colleagues to provide inspiring leadership within a framework, which enables risks to be assessed and managed whilst upholding the highest standards of probity;
- Act as an ambassador for the Trust, promoting its values, engaging with stakeholders including , patients and their families and ensuring that the Board is aware of their views;
If you share our vision and passion for delivering high quality services that are fit for future generations this may be the opportunity for you to make a difference to healthcare in Dorset. For one post, you are likely to have experience as a Director within a complex organisation with a track record of successfully leading organisational change through partnering, collaboration and systems leadership. You may have experience of working in local government or IM&T or HR and OD in the public or private sector. You will be a skilled ambassador offering, exceptional communication, leadership and strategic influencing skills that deliver results. We are also seeking a leader who has a clinical background, who is able to add value to the Board discussions from this perspective and who will Chair the Trust’s Quality Committee.
