Non Executive Director

Dorset County Hospital (DCH) are looking for two new NEDs to join our friendly, open and supportive Board of talented and committed executive and non-executive directors. Firstly someone who has a financial background to chair our Risk and Audit Committee, secondly someone who has experience in the field of population health, inequalities and the way in which NHS organisations can add social value to their local community. Beyond these specific skills, we want candidates who can bring different insights and perspectives, really challenging our thinking and helping us to do more for and with our population and staff. We are a Trust that celebrates diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We recognise the value of diversity in leadership, so we would particularly welcome applications from people from groups that are under-represented at Board level.

You will be joining us at a time when the new Dorset Integrated Care System will be taking shape, supporting our work with partners to refocus the health agenda, with a new emphasis on population health and health inequalities. This is a time of enormous challenge, but also huge potential opportunity; 2020 was an unprecedented year for us all, with many challenges and events that were unimaginable a year ago and this has continued into 2021. At DCH we are immensely proud of the way our teams
throughout the organisation have pulled together – responding swiftly and effectively to the emergency, delivering a radical and rapid reorganisation of our services and ensuring that we have been able to continue running the hospital safely; providing the very best care to everyone who needs us. We are not yet out of the woods, but working with colleagues across the Trust and with partners across the Dorset health and care system, we are well positioned to continue to manage the on-going pandemic while also restarting services, taking the best of the learning and innovation from this period and using it as an opportunity to reset how we do things.
