We are looking for a leader:

With an insatiable appetite for quality and operational excellence;

Able to inspire teams with a passion that drives ambition to achieve more;

Who can deliver at pace, with strategic insight and the commercial agility to shape the organisation’s future.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust is a high performing and successful organisation with ambition and drive. The Trust merged with Community Health Oxfordshire in April 2011 and now has an annual turnover of £280m, a committed workforce of 5,800 and provides a breadth of mental health and community services well beyond its traditional boundaries across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Swindon, Wiltshire, Bath and North East Somerset. This position is available due to the retirement of the current Chief Executive who has successfully led the Trust for the last 12 years.

We recognise the importance of a seamless approach to patient care and aim to integrate an individual’s journey to achieve ‘one person – one plan’. Our Board and workforce are united in their drive to achieve this and are supported by work focusing on the four key areas of our strategic framework:

• Driving Quality Improvements ensuring we are the first choice for patients and their families
• Delivering Operational Excellence getting it right first time
• Delivering Innovation, Learning and Teaching to make sure that patients benefit from the latest treatments and technologies
• Developing Our Services so that more communities gain from our expertise and care.

If you share our uncompromising desire to improve and excel and are able to utilise our strong links with Research and Development, then this opportunity will really appeal. If, in addition, you have a proven history of leading the delivery of outstanding patient outcomes, challenging others whilst creating a culture to innovate, we would like to hear from you.
