Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT) is looking for a compassionate and strategic leader to join our Board as Medical Director. Candidates will already be a senior NHS leader with an excellent track record of delivering innovative 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 Elective Care Recovery Programme, as well as our work with the GIRFT Elective Care Hub has been celebrated nationally and is an outstanding example of the power of clinical engagement and leadership.
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 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.
You will be joining an ambitious Board and successful Executive team. As Medical Director you 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. In addition to our brand new, purpose-built Emergency Department on our Huddersfield hospital site with the very latest digital and clinical technology, we are planning to expand our services at our Halifax site to further improve the services we offer to the communities we serve, including our community based services in Calderdale.
Our Medical Director 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.
