University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust    

Chief Executive

Salary: VSM

Location: Plymouth

University Hospitals Plymouth is seeking a substantive Chief Executive to lead the Trust in its next exciting phase of development and to continue to build on some of our recent successes. This leadership role presents some unique challenges and opportunities set in the vibrant waterfront city of Plymouth. Our dedicated and passionate staff of over 10,000 provide a range of acute, community, social care and mental health services to a population of 475,000 people, as well as providing major trauma and specialist services to almost 2,000,000 people across the south west. Against some challenging operational features, the CQC has rated us as “Outstanding” for caring and ‘Good’ for Well-Led.

We are a teaching hospital in partnership with the University of Plymouth as well as working closely with Plymouth Marjon University, and we have significant plans in place to build on these existing partnerships and develop our academic and research offering further. We have made material progress in a range of areas post COVID, but still have more to do, particularly regarding urgent and emergency care.  We are investing in our services, our technology and our estate to deliver our clinical strategy, developed in partnership with our clinicians and our partners in the region and to provide us with the capacity we need to deliver improvements in our urgent care pathways.

We are now looking for a new Chief Executive to lead us-and work closely with partners- on the next stage of our transformative journey. We are looking for an exceptional candidate who will celebrate our successes, drive the improvements we want to see with pace and compassion, and who will ensure that we remain a trusted partner to the people who work for us, our communities and partner organisations.

We want someone who will be ambitious for us and our communities, to deliver outstanding care and equitable outcomes for the populations we serve.

We are looking for an exceptional individual, with prior Chief Executive experience in the NHS, who is excited by the plans that we have. We want someone who will champion the delivery of outstanding care to our patients and communities, working in partnership with our local ICSs, delivery partners, and beyond to build new ways of working.

We are committed to building on the improvements we have already made, and if you can see yourself reflected in our values, ambitions, and vision, then we look forward to meeting you very soon.
