Vacancy Description

Join us to make a difference at the UK’s leading heart & chest hospital

Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital has an international reputation as a leading specialist provider of cardiothoracic services and is rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission; we lead the way in providing high quality patient and family centred services, research and innovation. We provide specialist services in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, respiratory medicine including adult cystic fibrosis and diagnostic imaging, both in the hospital and out in the community. We serve a catchment area of 2.8 million people, spanning Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man, and increasingly we receive referrals from outside these areas for some highly specialised services.

Our vision is to be the best – leading and delivering outstanding heart and chest care and research and we are now seeking two new Non-Executive Directors to join our Board and help us realise this ambition.


Person Specification

You will provide independence, high scrutiny, strong governance, risk management and strategic leadership as a member of our unitary Board to support and further advance the current high performance of the Trust. These are stimulating and strategic roles and we are open to applicants from all sectors who offer relevant leadership experience gained at a senior level in large or complex organisational environments. We have a particular interest in those with a financial background for one of the roles and for a second, we are keen to hear from those who have experience of partnership working or leading significant organisational change in a complex and dynamic external environment. These are excellent opportunities to use your skills and experience to make a difference to the lives of people across the region.

We warmly encourage applications from people of all backgrounds to improve the diversity of our board and provide a fresh and different perspective to our strategic decision making. If you are committed to putting patients, families, and our people at the heart of decision making and to excellence, openness and transparency then we’d love to hear from you.
