2 x Non-Executive Directors
Remuneration £13,000 3-4 days per month
Bridgewater Community Healthcare became a Foundation Trust in 2014 and is a leading provider of a range of high quality community and specialist healthcare services across the North West of England. Over 1 million adults and children benefit from these services across Halton, Oldham and Warrington along with a community dental network in these localities as well as Bolton, Tameside, Trafford, Glossop, Stockport and Western Cheshire.
We employ approx. 1800 staff and have an income of £83million which comes from our commissioners, who include Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS England and local organisations.
The majority of our services are delivered in patients’ homes or at locations close to where they live, such as clinics, health centres, GP practices, community centres and schools and we are committed to working closely with other providers, our communities and our commissioners to improve local health and promote wellbeing. We are committed to keeping people healthier for longer and developing more specialist services to support people to live independently at home.
We are now seeking to appoint 2 new Non-Executive Directors to serve on the Trust Board. The Board has the responsibility to maintain financial viability of the Trust and to ensure that high levels of probity, value for money and clinical governance are met and these new Non-Executive Directors will bring confident strategic corporate and financial insight.
The successful candidates will have Board or senior level expertise, possess an understanding of good corporate governance and an ability to effectively represent the Trust to its constituents, patients, partner organisations and regulators. S/he will offer strategic vision and ambition along with the ability to provide high support and challenge to our unitary Board. Most importantly you will share our values and our mission to working closely with local people and partners to promote good health and to be a leading provider of excellent community healthcare services in the North West. For one role, we are keen to receive applications from individuals with clinical experience and expertise either as a doctor, nurse or allied health professional and for the second from those who have worked with and have an in-depth knowledge of communities and their issues and challenges.
