The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

Director of Hospitals Transformation

Location: Shropshire

Attractive Salary 

At the end of August 2022, the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England formally confirmed approval of the Strategic Outline Case (SOC), bringing the vital transformation of acute hospital services for communities across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales a step closer.

The SOC sets out how this once in a generation investment in our local healthcare system will be utilised to implement the reconfiguration of acute services that was agreed as part of the Future Fit public consultation, which will see the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford specialise in planned care and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital specialise in emergency care.

The Hospitals Transformation Programme has been established to deliver these exciting plans that are aiming to make a real difference to our patients and families:

  • Enhanced and more effective emergency care delivered through a contemporary Emergency Department and 24/7 enhanced urgent care services (A&E Local Model in Telford), designed to meet the needs of our communities
  • Improved planned care delivered through dedicated facilities that operate throughout the year, supporting the needs of our population
  • A much better environment for patients, families and staff
  • Improved integration of services for local people

We are looking for a highly credible leader to progress this exciting and complex programme through to implementation.  The role brings national profile and recognition and the package on offer is highly competitive.

The successful candidate will have significant experience of managing large, multi-year transformation programmes with a substantial infrastructure component and be able to demonstrate the communication and engagement skills necessary to maintain the support and trust of a wide variety of stakeholder groups.

The appointee will be a positive, politically astute, and resilient leader, who is energised by our values and is highly motivated by the opportunity to positively impact the lives of our population.

The role reports to the Chief Executive of The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and will also be the Senior Responsible Officer for the Hospitals Transformation Programme.
