Vacancy Description

Croydon is a trailblazer in integration to join-up health and care services for local people, in line with radical reforms in the NHS.

The Trust is also a forerunner in service recovery after being one of the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Opening a ‘hospital within a hospital,’ the Trust was able to safely treat patients needed planned surgery and treatment throughout the pandemic and has been able to reduce waits for thousands of people as part of a coordinated response across the health and care system in South West London.

Croydon Health Services NHS Trust (CHS) has more than 4,000 staff and volunteers caring for over 385,000 Croydon residents in south London.

NHS England has a specific role in appointing and supporting NHS trust chairs and non-executives. We are looking for an exceptional leader to chair CHS. This is a unique opportunity to help shape the future of local services by sharing your talents and expertise to help transform  the hospital and make a positive difference to your community.
