This is a unique opportunity to undertake an associated leadership role across acute and community services at both Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (KHFT) and Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare NHS Trust (HRCH). The post-holder will be a Non-Executive Director in Common (NEDiC) as a voting member of the boards at both KHFT and HRCH. The KHFT and HRCH boards take collective responsibility for setting the strategic direction for the Trusts. The boards oversee their commitment to working together to deliver exceptional, compassionate care – each and every time – and to provide outstanding care and services.
Both HRCH and KHFT are high performing trusts and best in class for quality and staff experiences as evidenced in staff and patient surveys, as well as performance targets and awards. They are looking for candidates who want to use their energy, skills and experience to help drive the delivery of sustainable healthcare services for the people of South West London.
They are now seeking two further exceptional individuals with the personal reputation and professional credentials to contribute to the leadership of the Trusts. They would like one non-executive director to lead on finance and productivity and the other on primary health care. Both roles take over from outstanding individuals who are coming to the end of their terms.
Primary Health Care NEDiC
The NEDiC leading on Primary Health Care will champion, as a non-executive, the development of strategy across in the primary care sector and link both Trusts to achieve this together. There will be an opportunity to inspire and support executives leading place-based partnerships and in developing relevant connections with GPs, pharmacies, community and social services and other local services. The role will also lead on gaining assurances of plans, related implementations, and outcomes for primary health care activities undertaken by either or both Trusts.
The NEDiC leading Finance will champion, as a non-executive, the development and delivery of strategy for all finance matters at both Trusts, and those undertaken collaboratively. The role will also lead on gaining assurance of all finance matters and productivity, as managed by the executive, to ensure plans are fully formed, implemented and that outcomes support the Trusts’ other objectives by delivering good financial outcomes. The NEDiC for finance will also chair the finance committee in common between both Trusts.
The best boards are those that reflect the workforce and communities they serve. They particularly welcome applications from women, people from black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, and people with disabilities, who we know are all under-represented in these important roles.
Closing date for applications is: Friday 9th December at 11am.
