Vacancy Description

We are recruiting a Non-executive Director to join the board at United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community. In addition to the Board, the successful candidate will become a member of the Quality Assurance Committee and will provide support to the Director of Nursing and the Medical Director.

Person Specification

You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services.  You will have senior level clinical, patient safety and governance experience gained from medical, nursing or allied disciplines ideally within the acute sector. You will need high levels of personal resilience.

You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:

  • work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the board
  • bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
  • hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
  • shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust

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.

As a future NHS leader, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level role. These are outlined in the NHS Leadership Academy’s Healthcare Leadership Model.

Given the significant public profile and responsibility members of NHS Boards hold, it is vital that those appointed inspire confidence of the public, patients and NHS staff at all times. NHS Improvement makes a number of specific background checks to ensure that those we appoint are “fit and proper” people to hold these important roles. More information can be found on our website.
