Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust provides a wide range of clinical care, including general acute and emergency services, to approximately 250,000 people across Wiltshire, Dorset, and Hampshire. We also extend specialist regional services such as burns, plastic surgery, cleft lip and palate, genetics, and rehabilitation to a much wider population of over three million individuals. The Duke of Cornwall Spinal Treatment Centre at Salisbury District Hospital covers a significant portion of southern England, serving around eleven million people. Our staff members also conduct outpatient clinics in various locations in Dorset and Hampshire, and our specialist staff hold outreach clinics in hospitals within the 'Wessex' area.


We are now seeking to further enhance the executive team with the appointment of a new Chief Finance Officer. You will receive a warm welcome to Team Salisbury from a supportive and friendly group of colleagues, and with an executive team which embodies inclusivity and warmth. We have a clear vision of delivering an outstanding experience for patients, their families and our staff supported by investment in our Improving Together approach. This seeks  to build a culture and operational management system that encourages continuous quality improvement to flourish.

We are incredibly fortunate to maintain a special relationship with our local community, consistently receiving outstanding support. We are proud to have received a "Good" rating from the CQC and aspire to build on this.

Like many regions, there are financial challenges within our organisation and system, Bath, Northeast Somerset, Swindon, and Wiltshire ICS (BSW). We maintain strong and supportive relationships with colleagues across the system and the CFO will play an essential role in fostering system collaboration within our Acute Hospital Alliance as well as building on the close cooperation between community services, Wiltshire Council, and our local Primary Care Networks, to best help us effectively address the challenges that lie ahead.

Our determination is to make Salisbury NHS FT not only a provider of exceptional care but also an exceptional place to work. Substantial investments are being made in staff engagement, developing our leaders at all levels of the organisation giving our teams the best opportunities to deliver high quality sustainable services. Our people at the heart of everything we do – they are fundamental to our ability to deliver on our vision.

Salisbury offers an exceptional living and working environment due to its rural location and boasts its famous cathedral featuring the United Kingdom's tallest church spire at 404 feet (123 m) and is ranked as one of the top ten places to live in the UK. This role represents an extraordinary professional and personal opportunity to join an ambitious and dedicated executive and be part of an effective Board
