The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a world class health care provider, and one of the most successful teaching NHS trusts in the country.  Rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC and with an annual turnover of around £970million, the Trust has maintained a strong financial and regulatory standing despite a high-pressured operational environment. A tertiary centre, it offers the second highest number of specialist services of any other hospital group in the UK, with more than 1.69 million patient contacts each year and c14,000 staff, delivering innovative, high quality services locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. The Trust has strong research links to surrounding world-leading universities and research centres which enable the delivery of cutting-edge care to patients.

An organisation with the excellence and reputation of The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS FT, and its pivotal position in the locale, region and across the country, deserves and requires an equally special and skilled Chief Executive, to maintain and grow the excellence and reach of its clinical, research and educational services.  Reporting to the Board, the new CEO will strengthen the pursuit of its vision, promote the ongoing development of world leading services, and engage with staff, patients, the local health and care community to improve clinical quality, safety and outcomes. This will place patients at the heart of everything the Trust does.  The next CEO will bring inspirational and collaborative leadership, and a track record of delivery of high quality healthcare services.  Strategically able, he/she will also be a strong relationship-builder, able to forge close partnerships with a range of stakeholders and strategic partners.  This is a unique opportunity to lead an outstanding, important organisation into the next, exciting phase of its growth.
