Chief Medical Officer - Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust

Thank you for your interest in working with Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. We are looking for an exceptional individual to join the trust as Chief Medical Officer. This exciting and demanding role represents a fantastic opportunity for a motivated and inspirational leader to join LGT on their journey to improve patient care and help deliver their agreed priorities.

As an experienced clinician with proven leadership experience and skills, you will be joining the trust at an important time. They are proud of how their staff have met the demands of the Covid-19 pandemic and have worked hard to recover all services and meet ever increasing levels of patient demand. Whilst the pandemic presented unprecedented challenges for the organisation, it also provided a platform for change, innovation and partnership working that will help ensure their long-term financial and clinical stability.

Your role as the Chief Medical Officer will be key to ensuring the trust continues to work successfully alongside other clinical leaders across the South East London Integrated Care System as a community focused provider of consistently high quality local and acute care. You will have a key role in developing the role of the trust, as part of the South East London Acute Provider Collaborative, to actively contribute to the vitality of local communities and the reduction of health inequalities across this system.

We are looking for an inspirational and collaborative leader who is able to quickly build credibility within the trust and across their health and care system. The successful candidate will have a track record of inclusive, progressive and innovative leadership, and will be motivated by LGT’s dynamic, complex and challenging environment. They will also be excited by the trust’s improvement journey in recent years and the potential opportunity to build on this further, as LGT maximises opportunities to invest in health and care services across their system, creating better outcomes for their local populations.
