Services include Emergency Department, Maternity Unit Obstetrics and Neonatal, a range of unscheduled and elective activity from Surgical and Medical specialists for people of all ages at secondary care level.  A significant off island tertiary care budget is a key responsibility of this role, as specialist treatment is a necessary provision for a proportion of our residents from various NHS Trusts in the UK.

This post contributes to all of the key themes of the DHSC Strategy 2016-2021, with a particular focus on improving hospital services for people who need care in a hospital setting; yet actively facilitating people generally to stay well in their own homes and communities, avoiding hospital admission whenever possible. Ensuring that people receive good value health and social care is foundation for the strategy overall.

The post holder has lead responsibility for the effective management, efficient and economical delivery of Hospital service’s (including management and organisational) guided by policies and standards as lay down by the Department of Health and Social Care. The post holder will be a Director of the DHSC Board; will be required to contribute to a monthly Ministerial Department meeting, and to Chair meetings of the Hospital Senior Management Team.
