Outstanding Care Every Time

With over 9,000 dedicated staff caring for patients around the clock, St. George’s is the largest healthcare provider in South West London and one of the biggest and busiest hospital Trusts in London. It provides services out of two main hospital sites (St George’s Hospital in Tooting and Queen Mary Hospital in Roehampton), as well as health centres, GP surgeries, schools and people’s homes.

St George’s Hospital in Tooting is one of the country’s principal teaching hospitals as well as being a leading research institution. One of London’s four major trauma centres, the Trust is also a major centre for cancer and neurosciences, offering patients innovative new treatments such as the country’s first 24/7 mechanical thrombectomy service, as well as a leading children’s hospital. The Trust provides these services to over 3.5 million people, whilst providing a wider range of acute and community services to 1.3 million people across South West London.

St George’s is now part of a new hospital group with the nearby Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust, promoting increased collaboration and innovation. Whilst both Trusts are still separate legal entities, the Trusts are committed to working together increasingly collaboratively and share a Chairman and, since February 2022, have been led by a single Executive team. Several Trust Board committees now meet in common and work is underway to develop a new strategy for the overall group. The Trust is also a key part of the South West London Integrated Care System and the South West London Acute Provider Collaborative, which have fostered a significant increase in partnership working to improve outcomes for local communities.

We are looking to appoint an experienced clinical leader as a Non-Executive Director and who will chair our Quality Committee, as well as appointing a new Associate Non-Executive Director to support highly qualified candidates gain the experience to take on a full NHS Non-Executive Director post. For the first post we are looking for candidates with experience of working in a large and complex healthcare organisation at board level and who will ensure that the Quality Committee is a high performing assurance committee of the Board. For the second, we are especially interest in those who have not been a non-executive director before and who have protected characteristics. The Associate NED will have mentoring from the Trust Chair, and we would hope to learn as much from your experience as you learn from us.
