The Walton Centre is unique - we are the only standalone specialist hospital trust in the UK dedicated to providing comprehensive neurology, neurosurgery, spinal and pain management services. Our services span a patient population of circa 3.5 million from Merseyside, Cheshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, the Isle of Man and North Wales.  Our vision is “Excellence in neuroscience” – to strive for outstanding patient outcomes and the best patient, family and carer experience. We are proud to be recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission.  We are working closely with partner organisations within Cheshire & Merseyside to improve patient care and experience.  To do that we have ambitions to pioneer new treatments nationally and internationally and to be recognised as excellent in our patient and family centred care, clinical outcomes, innovation and staff wellbeing.

Three of our current Non Executive Directors are coming to the end of their terms of service and we therefore have an exciting opportunity for three talented individuals to join our high performing board.  For all appointments we will be seeking inspirational leaders who have operated at or near Board level in large, complex organisations, who can bring a strong understanding of good governance, a commitment to our values, positive energy and fresh thinking.  Challenging and supporting our committed Board, you will play a vital role in shaping our successful future.

For one of the appointments we are interested in hearing from individuals with a clinical and research background and senior level leadership experience.  For the second we are seeking a Chair for our Audit Committee; financially qualified with relevant experience operating at Board level at an equivalent scale.  And for the third appointment we are interested in hearing from those leaders who bring a fresh perspective and insight gained in a commercial setting.
