Non-Executive Director - Northern Care Alliance NHS Group
The Northern Care Alliance (NCA) is a flagship healthcare provider and heralded as a beacon of outstanding practice in the NHS. We are one of the largest providers in England, employing over 19,000 staff, and serving close to 1 million people across the North of Greater Manchester. Under this Alliance there are currently four Care Organisations for Oldham, Bury, Rochdale and Salford which are responsible for providing healthcare services to local communities, as well as specialist services provided at regional and national level.
The future is as challenging as it is exciting; the impact of Covid-19 has seen an unparalleled level of transformation in our health and care sector with all our hospitals delivering a remarkable performance in the most difficult of circumstances. The crisis has further reinforced the importance of the NCA’s role and the NCA is working with partners to better integrate care and services across local communities and delivering major transformation programmes to deliver its bold vision of ‘Saving Lives, Improving Lives’ by delivering highly reliable care and services, at scale, which are trusted, connected and pioneering.
This creates a great opportunity for a new role as Non-Executive Director. We are looking for someone who can bring their own unique set of experiences and expertise to a progressive NHS Group as it adapts, evolves, and grows in one of the most dynamic and diverse regions of the UK. It is a crucial time for us at the Northern Care Alliance and having the right people in place will be critical for us to continue to deliver the best possible care for our patients and local communities.
Joining us as a Non-Executive Director represents a rare leadership opportunity, a role of significant scope and profile and one that has the chance to impact the lives of the many people we serve.
We are looking for a Non-Executive Director who can bring the voice of our local communities into the boardroom, specifically, someone who has extensive, senior knowledge of local government, the responsibilities local authorities have and the issues they face with the increasing convergence of public and private sector policy-making. With a commitment to the reduction of health inequalities, you will be someone who understands the importance of population health and the role health care providers can play in promoting it.
