Chair - East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT)

ESNEFT are seeking a new Chair to provide strategic focus to the Board of Directors, to provide vision and leadership to staff, engage effectively with governors, stakeholders and partner organisations and take a pivotal role in supporting the development of the integrated care system.

ESNEFT was formed on 1 July 2018, from the merger of Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust and The Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust. We are the largest provider of healthcare in the East of England and deliver care to almost 800,000 residents from nine sites in Colchester, Ipswich and the surrounding areas, and through community services.

Our vision is to provide the communities we serve with excellent healthcare and build a better future for east Suffolk and north Essex. The merger has provided us with an opportunity to maintain, strengthen and grow our services. Our new philosophy of “time matters” will use technology and innovation to improve our systems and ways of working to remove unnecessary stress to our patients and staff.

To support this vision, we now need a Chair to provide strategic focus to our Board of Directors, to provide vision and leadership to our staff, engage effectively with our governors, stakeholders and partner organisations and take a pivotal role in supporting the development of the integrated care system.

In addition to the skills, knowledge and experience that you will bring, we expect the successful candidate to provide robust support and challenge to our executive and non-executive team to ensure we deliver our vision. Recognising that the healthcare challenges of the early 21st century are likely to require system-wide solutions and the integration and streamlining of services rather than an institutional approach, we are keen to appoint an individual who is skilled at forming strong, productive relationships, both within the Trust and with the wider community and its stakeholders.
