Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT) is looking for a strategic and compassionate leader to join our Board as Chief Nurse. Candidates will be a senior NHS leader with an excellent track record of delivering improved quality of care to patients and will also be a champion of the workforce delivering that care.
CHFT is an integrated Trust of 6,500+ colleagues providing hospital and community services to patients and communities across Calderdale and Kirklees. We are rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission, are a top performing Trust for Emergency and Cancer Care and widely acknowledged as a national digital lead when it comes to caring for people across our local and regional systems.
Our people are at the core of everything we do, hence our commitment to One Culture of Care. Our focus is to care for and support each other in order to provide outstanding compassionate care to our patients. That is why we are looking for an inclusive collaborative, creative, innovative and compassionate leader to join us in this role.
As a member of the Executive team, our Chief Nurse will play a significant role in the reconfiguration of our services designed to enhance patient experience, as well as provide a positive environment for colleagues. By creating a brand new, purpose-built Emergency Department on our Huddersfield hospital site with the very latest digital and clinical technology and by expanding our services at our Halifax site we aim to further improve the services we offer to the communities we serve, including our community based services in Calderdale.
Our Chief Nurse will work nationally, regionally and locally to further advance our work on Health Inequalities and will be a determined and focused champion for the quality of care we provide across all our services. You will join a Board that is fully committed to improving health outcomes in our communities and who sees the health and wellbeing of its workforce as vital to the delivery of compassionate care to our patients.
