Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust provides mental health, substance misuse, learning disability and community physical health services to a population of over a million people. These services are provided in partnership with commissioners, local authorities, voluntary and independent organisations, people who use our services and their carers. We also provide specialist services within Liverpool, Sefton, Bolton, Warrington, Halton and Trafford. With an annual income approaching £160m we employ more than 3,600 staff across 65 sites.

We are a forward thinking and successful organisation rated as ‘Good’ overall and ‘Outstanding’ for care, by the Care Quality Commission.  As such, we are recognised for exceptional care and for supporting the most vulnerable people in society to live full lives.  Strategically we are at the heart of plans for service development and integration across the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership.

At this progressive and challenging time of change in the NHS and social care landscape, we are seeking two new Non-Executive Directors to provide diversity, support and challenge to our experienced and ambitious Board team.  We are seeking person-centred leaders with a commitment to our values who bring an understanding of populations we serve and the wider determinants of health and well-being. We are committed to building a diverse Board that is representative of its local community and encourage candidates from a broad range of backgrounds who have a mixture of skills and experience relevant to this role.

As a Non-Executive Director, your role will be to develop and shape the corporate agenda and ensure that the best interests of patients and local communities are at the heart of what we do. We are particularly keen to hear from strategic leaders with good understanding of governance and performance management, with experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • partnership working in complex stakeholder environments;
  • a deep understanding of academia research and its application in service delivery;
  • a background in primary care or the broader health and social care sector; or
  • experience in organisational development and/or leading service transformation through technology.

We see all these areas as critical to our journey to further integrate and improve our health and care services; working with partners to develop new models of delivery across organisational boundaries.
