Vacancy Description

Barking, Havering and Redbridge and University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) provides acute hospital care to the populations of Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge in outer east London, and in West Essex. The trust also provides regional neuroscience and cancer specialist services and operates a specialist stroke service.

BHRUT provides care to a community of around 750,000 people, which includes some of the most vulnerable people living in London. The size of the trust’s local population is predicted to increase by more than ten percent in the next ten years.

Services are provided at Queen’s Hospital in Romford and King George Hospital in Goodmayes and in some community settings.

This is a unique opportunity to share your talents and expertise to help transform BHRUT and make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

The Chair will provide the leadership needed to drive the continued improvement of the healthcare services the Trusts provides its patients and the local community, both now and in the future. There will be many challenges along the way, but the most challenging roles are often the most rewarding.
