What are we for looking for?
With the Medical NED’s departure at the end October 2023, we are looking to recruit a current GMC registered doctor to join our Board as the new Medical NED.
We are open to the background of our new medical NEDs who may work in primary care; an acute care setting or in the community. We would welcome interest from individuals working within a clinical network who have an interest in transforming healthcare delivery and outcomes – moving services out of Hospital into the Community. Given the organisation wide remit of the role, the post may be attractive to someone aspiring to become a future Medical Director.
As a values driven organisation, we will recruit in a values driven way. Our culture is of honesty and transparency and of a continuous learning organisation in which improvement is central. Our values are to ‘Aim HIGH’ – by having Honesty; Integrity; aGility and Humility.
We want an individual that is aligned to our values but also has skills that complement and add further value to those of our existing Board members:
- Ability to think strategically and ideally has operated at a strategic level within a healthcare system;
- Understands the health care market and is conversant with healthcare policy and aspirations (e.g. NHS Plan and care outside of hospitals)
- Has experience or sees the value of working in partnership with other stakeholders;
- Has some understanding of where there may be opportunities to provide services in a different way – both with the NHS and private sector.
We have 10 Board meetings each year, which usually occur on the last Wednesday of the month and also a small number of Board development sessions. The level of commitment required of our Medical NEDS is an approximately 15 days each year.
