Non-executive Director x 2 - Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Sherwood Forest Hospitals is the main acute hospital Trust for the local population of 418,000 across Nottinghamshire, as well as parts of Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. Our 4,500 staff provide acute healthcare services with a singular focus on delivering the best possible patient care and with the aim of becoming an ‘Outstanding’ Trust. Whilst our 2018 CQC report is not yet available, we know the CQC recognise the many improvements we have made over the last couple of years. The care we provide is safer than before, but we are on a journey and there is much more we will achieve in the next couple of years. We have the second strongest staff engagement scores in the East Midlands, where we are one of the safest providers of care. We delivered the best emergency care performance in the East Midlands in Q1 and we achieved all of our key financial indicators in 2017/18. We are a Trust that is going from strength to strength with safe, personalised patient care and empowered staff at the centre of everything we do.
We currently have two NED vacancies on the Board and are looking for candidates with the following expertise:
