We have a strong foundation with which to face the significant headwinds of the next few years. As well as achieving our ambition of having three outstanding hospitals serving our large and diverse community, we also need to work with commissioners and other local care providers as part of the local Sustainability and Transformation Partnership, one of 8 exemplar STPs chosen by NHS England.

  • Provide visible and engaging leadership to our diverse workforce of 8,500 across our three main hospital sites and beyond, inspiring and motivating staff to play their part in the continued transformation and improvement of our services.
  • Deliver the biggest capital programme in the history of the Trust, seeing through to fruition and realising the business benefits of a new purpose built Emergency Department and Assessment Centre at Wexham Park Hospital and a new £90m hospital in Ascot.

The candidate:

  • Excellent leadership qualities, evidenced by a positive track record of leading and managing staff to achieve significant targets at a senior level within a health care setting.
  • Proven innovator with the knowledge and enthusiasm for new ways of working to bring about step change to make the organisation more effective and efficient in all that it does.
