People keen to make a difference to the lives of others are being invited to apply for two vacancies on the board of an NHS trust.

United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust is looking for two non-executive directors with a high level of commitment to patients, carers and the diverse communities of Lincolnshire.

Candidates should have experience of working at a senior level in a large organisation, with a clinical background and recent financial experience.

Non-executive directors are members of the trust’s board who are not employees of the trust or part of the executive management team. They are responsible for constructively challenging and contributing to the development of strategy and scrutinising the performance of management.

The new directors will play a key role in supporting the development of the trust to become a Foundation Trust, and continuing the organisation’s focus on safe, high-quality care.

Paul Richardson, trust chairman, said: “These roles are ideal for anyone who wants to make a difference. Non-executive directors play a key role in shaping hospital services for the future and ensuring that high quality and safe services are being delivered today.

“We are looking for people with strategic thinking, team working and excellent communication skills who are passionate about the continued improvement of local hospital services.

“We are particularly keen to hear from candidates who have a clinical background, experience of working with or in the third sector, or someone with a recent financial background.”

To discuss the role with Mr Richardson, contact his PA Julie Marshall on 01522 573989.
