Due to the retirement of the current post-holder, an exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic individual to lead our Primary Care and Community Mental Health services; the position is available for an immediate start.
At Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust we are dedicated to providing high-quality, integrated community, mental health and learning disabilities services. Rated “Good” by the CQC, we are proud to play a key role in the local health and social care system and in the development and delivery of our local Integrated Care System (ICS).

This is an exciting career opportunity for an ambitious senior leader who is driven to work in a high performing Trust.
You will join a team of Associate Directors working with the Chief Operating Officer and will be accountable for the performance, financial stability and quality of a portfolio of services. Taking the strategic and operational lead for Primary Care and Community Mental Health Service delivery across Worcestershire and Herefordshire, your role is vital in ensuring that the Trust is a strong partner in the STP’s integrated care systems.
You will also be the relationship manager for Herefordshire and maintain the Trust’s important role in that system, ensuring that Mental Health and Learning Disability provision is embedded in local health and social care. You will also represent the Trust at Herefordshire Integrated Care Executive meetings. You will lead major strategic projects for the Chief Operating Officer across the organisation and the wider health economy as required. You may also be required to deputise for the Chief Operating Officer.
You will have a key role in ensuring the delivery of safe and effective person centered services through the development and implementation of dynamic service delivery plans which support the delivery of our key Trust strategies. You will manage and work collaboratively with clinical and quality leads and the other Associate Directors to ensure evidence based practices are developed and aligned to a strong clinical governance and assurance framework. Using innovation and creativity you will maximize resources to deliver financial efficiencies and effective service delivery.
The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate sound leadership, credible and in-depth experience of leading on system wide programmes within the NHS, working collaboratively with social care whilst managing and supporting staff and teams.
Applications are welcomed from candidates with experience in a substantive role at senior management level within the NHS, including experience of management of multiple teams and staff.
