Hello and thank you for your interest in Sussex Partnerships and our Non-Executive Director role.
As a specialist provider of mental health services, we need to ensure that the services we provide are co-produced with those who are experts in local need – expertise that may be
clinical or experiential. We need to share skills and build capacity across our community, focusing on prevention and promotion and on building resilience and reducing over-medication.
Covid-19 has exposed some fundamental weaknesses in the NHS infrastructure and those of us who work in mental health have seen a huge increase in demand for our services, which will have significant implications for how we design and deliver those services, and for how we see our future role. We know we have set ourselves a significant challenge and it will not be easy to get this right, but if we do, it will mean a very real and tangible improvement to our populations’ long-term health and wellbeing.
So there has never been a better or more exciting time to join us as a Non-Executive Director. We are looking for someone with first-hand knowledge of mental health and/or mental health services. You will have a real commitment to working in partnership to tackle health inequalities – and you will be able to demonstrate that commitment with a track record of delivering real, tangible improvement in reducing inequalities. You will be joining a team – and an organisation – where integrity, compassion, intellect and drive are all standard entry requirements so we will be looking for evidence that you can match their passion and commitment.
If that sounds like a challenge you are up for, then we would love to hear from you. Please contact our recruitment partners Rhiannon Smith or Jenny Adrian at Hunter Healthcare on 07939 250362 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
