Could you be our new Nurse Director?
NHS Tayside is the fourth largest healthcare provider in Scotland and one of only four teaching Boards. With strong links to local Universities, the Board provides tertiary services to around 350,000 people across Tayside and North East Fife, employing over over 13,000 staff across three hospital and many other sites. Primary and community care services are currently organised into three Health and Social Care Partnerships (HSCPs) in Dundee city, Perth and Kinross and Angus which are overseen by Integration Joint Boards. Our ambition is to be regarded as a sector leader in the provision of high quality patient care.
We are transforming the way we deliver healthcare through the Transforming Tayside programme; an ambitious programme of whole-system redesign which seeks to find solutions and new ways of delivering health and care, which is led by our clinicians. It is rooted in maintaining safe, high-quality patient care, remodelling our workforce and improving outcomes whilst bringing the organisation back into financial balance. Whilst seeking to implement fundamental transformation towards modern world class services, the Board also has to address underlying financial, workforce and service delivery issues.
To thrive in this role the new Nurse Director will share our vision, aim and values and will provide inspirational and empowering leadership to our nurses and midwives and ensure a culture of continuous quality improvement where patients and service users are put first always. Key to this will be the establishment of robust governance and regulatory frameworks to ensure effective monitoring, review and improved clinical performance across the Board and the Health & Social Care Partnerships. You will also be the executive lead for our Allied Health Professions. As a key member of the senior management team you will contribute to the corporate business of the Board and also be a Board member.
Educated to masters level or equivalent to be successful you must be an inspirational and credible nurse with extensive experience at a Board level with a proven track record of delivering clinical and service transformational change within the NHS or other large complex organisation.
