One of the largest NHS Trusts, with close to 12,000 staff serving over one million patients a year, Imperial College Healthcare provides a wide range of acute and specialist care for its patient population in north west London and beyond. Its five hospitals have a long track record in providing high quality health care, undertaking world leading research and education, and influencing clinical practice nationally and worldwide. With its academic partner Imperial College, the Trust was one of the UK’s first academic health science centres and has been recognised as one of the NHS’s global digital exemplars.
The Trust is looking for two in-coming non-executives who will work with the Board and its new Chair, Paula Vennells, to develop the Trust’s strategy and vision, enhancing its ability to deliver its ambitious goals of providing excellent care and outstanding clinical services within a modern estate. All candidates must be confident in a senior, high performing, board environment and in their ability to constructively challenge and probe performance in a large, complex, organisational setting. The successful candidates will embody the Trust’s values, holding the patient at the front and centre of everything that they do. Candidates will also be passionate about how digital and data can improve productivity and enhance the working life of colleagues in the front line.
The Redevelopment Non-Executive will bring experience of estates transformation, specifically with experience in capital raising and stakeholder management amidst complex infrastructure projects. This person will bring a strategic understanding of development to the Trust’s estates strategy, to advise the Trust as it modernises and revitalises current service sites and hospitals over the next decade. The successful candidate will demonstrate resilience, drive, positivity, and a clear ability to inspire and influence the Trust’s actions and engagement from a position of experience, integrity and authority.
The Strategy and Innovation Non-Executive will bring an understanding of the strategic direction of travel in health and experience building strong external partnerships in healthcare, understanding environments where high quality, service, future sustainability and innovation are valued. Ideally this person will have a deep understanding of the digital agenda and its implications on healthcare provision. The best candidates will be those who understand, through their own leadership experience, how successful organisations must adapt to embrace the future health agenda. This person will help the Trust to strengthen current relationships while building new partnerships across the health system, engaging widely as a thought leader across the system, with a focus on providing the best care to the population we are proud to serve.
