Dear Colleague

Thank you very much for your interest in the role of Non-Executive Director at Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

This is an exciting time for the Trust and we have clear ambitions to be the preferred, integrated provider of healthcare for our local population. The future for us is one of great opportunity having been identified as one of the major acute hospitals in the Shaping a Healthier Future Programme, reconfiguring services in North West London.  Within this programme the Trust will see an expansion of its services, including emergency care and maternity, to a broader catchment area.  Utilising the potential of the reconfiguration to develop the Trust, the optimal blend of expansion, service transformation and partnering could be the most critical strategic issue to face the Trust’s board in a generation. The Trust has started master planning for a new hospital build, rationalisation of its sites, and the establishment of an Academic Centre for Health Sciences with Brunel University London and other partners.

We are also working towards an innovative new Accountable Care Partnership to join up the way we care for older people. This is being jointly developed by Hillingdon Hospital, our neighbouring Trust Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL),  a federation of voluntary sector partners and Hillingdon’s four GP networks working together with Hillingdon Council.

However in common with other NHS organisations, we face some challenges over the next few years with significant cost improvement plans and a tight financial picture as well as operational pressures through increased demand. We need to continue to think differently about the way we provide care to ensure that our communities can receive the best possible services.

To achieve our aims we need a diverse and talented board with a range of skills and experience. We are looking for a Non-Executive Director who can add value with a breadth of board level experience gained in a public service or voluntary sector environment who can help us with our strategic partnerships regionally and locally.

We hope you will find all the information that you require in this pack but please do not hesitate to contact our partner, Melanie Shearer at GatenbySanderson should you have any further queries.

In the meantime, we look forward to receiving your application.
