North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust
There is a vacancy for a Non-executive Director at North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people served by the Trust.
You will need to have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services. You will have senior level clinical and patient safety expertise gained from medical, nursing, allied health professional or an academic who has recent clinical experience.
The successful candidate will Chair the Quality & Performance Assurance Committee and will be responsible for reporting to board issues relating to the delivery of safe and effective care as well as performance in relation to national and local indicators for paramedic emergency services, patient transport and 111. Experience of operating at Director or Deputy Director level is therefore essential.
You will need to be able to demonstrate you can use your experience to:
- work alongside other non-executives and executive colleagues as an equal member of the board
- bring independence, external perspectives, skills and challenge to strategy development
- hold the executive to account by providing purposeful, constructive scrutiny and challenge
- shape and actively support a healthy culture for the trust
All non-executive directors must champion the standards of public life – by upholding the highest standards of conduct and displaying the principles of selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty, and leadership.
As a future NHS leader, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate the range of behaviours required to contribute effectively in this board level role. These are outlined in the NHS Leadership Academy’s Healthcare Leadership Model. https://www.leadershipacademy.nhs.uk/resources/healthcare-leadership-model/
Applicants should live in or have strong connections with the North West.
