Dear Candidate

Thank you for your interest in becoming one of two new Non-Executive Directors for Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. I hope that you will enjoy exploring this website and finding out more about the roles, our organisation, our achievements, and our ambitions.

The Chair of the Trust  will work closely with you to help deliver the Trust’s strategic priorities. As current Chair, I step down from my position at the end of December 2021, following the conclusion of my tenure.  Our new Chair, Isla Wilson, will be part of the selection process – and the Trust look forward to welcoming Isla to lead our Board and Council of Governors in the next phase of our development. Under the leadership of our highly experienced Chief Executive and her Executive team, we have a strong platform on which to build as we enter a new era of Integrated Care Systems. I am passionate about this Trust and providing high quality services for the populations we serve. I hope you that will you be inspired by our vision and share our values.

We are a forward-thinking organisation recognised for outstanding care and for supporting the most vulnerable people in society to live full lives. We continue to invest in new and improved facilities and technology working closely with our service users and their carers and families in all our decision making. We are rated  Good by CQC, and we continually aspire to achieve more for the people within our communities.  The pandemic has further exposed the level of inequality in our society, and we recognise that its impact will continue to increase demand on our services.  Our vision to work ‘in partnership to improve health and well-being by providing high quality, person-centred care’ is therefore even more critical than ever.  These are exciting posts, with an opportunity to really make a difference to the lives of our communities and our colleagues.

Strategically we are at the heart of the development of plans for service development and integration across the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership. Our commitment to partnership working will be critical to our future success. We are seeking two clinical Non-Executive Directors who will bring not only their professional and technical expertise but also their own fresh thinking to our Trust.  Your work will be inspired by our strong vision, and you will be able to quickly build trust and credibility with our service users, carers, Governors, staff and partners.  You will be a values-led leader, experienced at Board level in a complex and changing multi-stakeholder environment, inspiring others to achieve meaningful change. Your clinical health or care experience may have been gained in the NHS or the wider statutory or non-statutory sectors.  Bringing your whole self to the position; we particularly welcome interest from individuals with protected characteristics and /or lived experience of our services who are underrepresented on our Board.
