Chief Digital Information Officer

We are looking for an exceptional Chief Digital & Information Officer (CDIO) to join our team at West London NHS Trust.

West London NHS Trust is one of the most diverse healthcare providers in the UK, delivering a range of mental health, physical healthcare and community services commissioned locally and nationally. We have grown significantly in recent years with investment in mental health and community services, including using digital technologies to transform the way we deliver patient services and how staff experience working in our organisation. We understand the centrality of ‘digital’ as a core component of best care and we desire to be at the forefront of national innovation. This is an exciting role that reflects our commitment to digital transformation, and we are now seeking a CDIO who shares our ambition.

The CDIO will be responsible for leading the development and delivery of our digital strategy and the optimisation of the organisational structures that work to this. The postholder will steer Board and Executive discussions on horizon scanning, most innovative current and future practice, future investments, and ensure that the vision, direction and clinical strategy for the Trust is fully enabled by digital processes, change and innovation. The incumbent will work closely with all key stakeholders, lead conversations on technology and data and their use in West London, and play a key role with respect to developing the digital agenda in partnership with the Integrated Care Board (ICB).

This is an opportunity to join an ambitious organisation in a new senior leadership role. The ideal candidate will have a demonstratable track record in delivering high-quality and innovative digital and change programmes, with an ability to steer the digital direction of the Trust and influence, inspire and unify those along the journey. You will be a compassionate, values-driven leader with strong emotional intelligence and high integrity.

We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from under-represented groups, including disabled people and members of our black, Asian and minority ethnic communities to improve the diversity of experience within our senior leadership team.
