Vacancy Description

N1824

This is a unique opportunity to play a key leadership role influencing the planning and delivery of services to the communities served by the two NHS Trusts and ensure that care they provide to patients continues to be of the highest quality.

Is this you?

  •     Experienced, dynamic and driven individual who believes in the NHS
  •     Strong, compassionate leader
  •     Passion for quality and excellence
  •     Ability to build alliance and successful relationships

If this is you, we are looking for a Chair for Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust. This is an interesting, challenging position which will play to your strengths and experience at Board level.

The Trusts are at the cutting edge of ‘integrated care’ and in 2018, together with local partners, were appointed as one of the 14 national integrated care systems. This is because we have been identified as one of the most rapidly improving healthcare systems in the country. As part of the integration agenda, the Trusts have started to explore opportunities to form a single NHS provider organisation. This is just the first step towards integrating health and care with our ultimate aim of providing a more robust and resilient service for patients.

Appointing a Chair to lead both Boards and Governors Council will ensure we are guided by a shared ambition and vision to transform services and improve outcomes for patients. The Chair will also have a significant role in designing and developing the architecture for the integrated care system.

The role offers a unique opportunity to take a key leadership role influencing the planning and delivery of services to the communities served by the two NHS Trusts. Crucially, it also offers the opportunity to ensure that the care and support provided to patients continues to be of the highest quality.

Our Chair will be crucial to the success of our shared agenda and be responsible for ensuring that our Boards and Executive Teams are able to deliver the leadership the organisations need to fulfil their potential. We are looking forward to working with someone who can help shape our future and be both an influencer and ambassador for the two Trusts among our stakeholders and within our communities. To do this, you will have a passion for quality and excellence to match that of our dedicated and innovative workforce. You will have the ability to work collaboratively with a range of stakeholders, including our governors, patients, communities and our strategic partners to continue the development of a new vision for integrated care.
