Lancashire and South Cumbria is the major health and wellbeing provider for a population of 1.7 million people across Lancashire and South Cumbria.  A provider of mental health and learning disability services and physical health services in the community. We are on a journey of improvement, have a new Chief Executive and a completely new Executive Team and have invested significantly in mental health services in the last year.

We are implementing a new leadership structure of four Locality Networks and one Specialist Services Network designed to transform the delivery of our clinical operational services.  We aim to ensure that every person using our services receives high quality care no matter where they access services.   It supports our commitment to embedding cultural change through a style of leadership that is aligned to our values ‘we are kind, respectful, always learning and a team’.  We are seeking compassionate leaders who are champions of diversity and inclusion, put service users and carers at the centre of decision making and actively work in partnership.

At this critical time in the development of our new Locality Network Structure, we have introduced a new position of Deputy Chief Operating Officer reporting to our new Chief Operating Officer, Chris Oliver as part of a dynamic and refreshed leadership team.  This role will have significant Board exposure and wide responsibilities across the Trust and externally within the systems we operate.  We are seeking a visible leader, an aspirant Executive with a track record of strong operational service delivery in complex healthcare environments. You will bring a compassionate and inclusive style which will support the development of our Locality Networks enabling them to operate with autonomy and ensuring all our populations receive consistent, high quality services.  Sharing our commitment to diversity and inclusion you will create a supportive environment where our workforce is empowered to drive improvement, thrive and operate at their best.  This is an excellent opportunity to step towards an executive position and to make your mark in a person-centred organisation at the start of an exciting and progressive journey of change.
