Non-Executive Directors, North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust

North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust is the newest acute hospital Trust in the UK, having formed on the 1st April 2017 from the merger of Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust. The new organisation runs three busy acute hospitals and our 6,000 staff use their skills, knowledge and experience to provide a variety of services to a population of over 700,000 across Cambridgeshire, South Lincolnshire and the neighbouring counties.

At this critical stage in our development, we are seeking talented and highly motivated Non-Executive Directors to join the Board who have worked at a senior level in a large, complex organisation and are able to make an invaluable contribution to the strategic direction and future success of North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust. Working closely with the Chair, you will have a strong commitment to the principles of the NHS and provide strategic direction, leadership and challenge at the Board of Directors.

In these roles, we are actively seeking individuals from a range of professional backgrounds including candidates who:

- are financially qualified and have held Finance Director or equivalent roles from either the public or private sector;
- have provided strategic leadership to IT/technology functions, perhaps as a CIO;
- offer Board level skills from a broad commercial background, and;
- have clinical experience which may come from a variety of primary or secondary care settings.

Your role will be to ensure that the Trust fulfils its statutory and legislative responsibilities, whilst always prioritising a commitment to excellent patient care. You will utilise your professional skills and perspective and add value to the governance and strategic development of the Trust, holding senior managers to account and offering collaborative challenge and advice. You are likely to have close links with our catchment area and will be committed to making a difference to the way care is delivered to patients.
