Non Executive Director Opportunities at LHCH

Date: 28 May 2021 10:59

Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital is seeking to appoint two new Non-Executive Directors - one general and one finance.


Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital is a successful organisation and has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. Whilst we have much to be proud of, we recognise the need to adapt to ensure our services are fit for the future.

In common with all NHS providers, we face a number of significant challenges including the well-being of our workforce, recovery and restoration following from the Covid-19 pandemic; financial constraints; changes to the way our services are commissioned and delivered; and an ever greater need to engage stakeholders and further develop collaborative partnerships.  The proposed changes in legislation set out in the NHS White Paper - Integration and innovation: working together to improve health and social care - bring these opportunities and challenges to the fore and mark an interesting and exciting time for service provision and workforce development, both regionally and nationally.

The NHS is a dynamic and ever-changing environment, and we are looking for Non-Executive Directors who will help to challenge our thinking through their own skills, and both professional and lived experience, to support us to achieve our vision. We are committed to providing excellent healthcare for our patients and ensuring the Trust is a great place to work for our people.

To help us continue to build our reputation, you will need to build on your previous senior level experience to shape our vision for the future and be able to challenge constructively and supportively, contributing to the decisions of the Board of Directors. You will also provide visible leadership within the Trust. I believe these are exciting opportunities to be part of a successful Trust that aspires to be the best.
