Non-Executive Director - Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust
Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust (Musgrove Park Hospital), is the largest General Hospital in Somerset, well located near the M5 in Taunton, with an excellent record for patient safety and a number of leading specialties. We have an annual turnover of £260.6m and serve a population of more than 340,000. We are a values-driven organisation with a mission to put our patients first by working as one team; leading, listening and striving for the best. We are a forward-thinking and ambitious Trust with a first class reputation for clinical excellence and a clear strategic vision. We have achieved much, but there is much more to be done as we strive towards our twin goals of helping to lead the transformation of the health and social care economy in Somerset and continuing to develop Musgrove; all of which must be achieved whilst meeting the financial challenges that are common across the NHS.
There is now an exciting opportunity for a new Non-Executive Director to come and join our dynamic Board. We know that this journey will not be easy, but you will be working with dedicated, focused and engaged staff at all levels of the organisation. We are looking for an exceptional individual: a team player with emotional intelligence, passion and humour as well as a broad range of strategic and operational management skills and a recognised finance qualification. We want board colleagues whose capacity to challenge constructively can inspire and motivate; someone with the ability to influence - both internally and externally - and communicate effectively with all types of audience and with a track record of building successful teams and bringing about change in large organisations.
