  • Board level experience
  • Experience of board level Safety and Quality Committee or significant clinical experience
  • Experience of working at a strategic level in a higher education institution / university with experience of working in partnership and collaboration with other organisations;

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit.

We particularly welcome applications from people from the local black and minority ethnic communities and/or people with disabilities who are able to make a real contribution to this organisation and who can contribute to shaping our strategic direction.

All non-executive directors must champion the standards of public life – by upholding the highest standards of conduct and displaying the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.
