We are recruiting a Chair for North Bristol NHS Trust.


North Bristol NHS Trust is the largest hospital trust in the South West of England, providing hospital and community healthcare to the residents of Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset.

The Trust is looking for a chair who can build on the strong foundations in place, which include a clear and coherent strategy, a highly capable and experienced Board, improving financial grip, a fantastic workforce and improving quality and operational performance. 

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and appointments made on merit. We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities they serve.

We particularly welcome applications from women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities, and disabled people who we know are under-represented in chair and non-executive roles.
