The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust
Excellence in Leadership
EXECUTIVE MEDICAL DIRECTOR
Leeds Teaching Hospitals (LTHT) is one of the country’s leading NHS Trusts offering a full range of specialist and general hospital services with good clinical outcomes for patients. Our international reputation for excellence in specialist care, education and research combined with our talented workforce and distinctive geography provide a unique platform on which we are building to become the best hospital in the country.
As a natural hub for Yorkshire and with excellent connections to all parts of the North of England, we have worked hard to bring a logical alignment to patient services within well equipped, modern facilities such as our worldclass cancer centre and the new Leeds Children’s Hospital. We are the first major multi-site hospital in the UK to have adopted this under-one-roof approach to patient care.
Placing quality at the heart of everything we do, we seek to build on our reputation of achieving excellent clinical outcomes for our patients and match that with high rated results in patient safety and experience. We are moving to a clinically led, managerially supported model to ensure that we harness the innovation, skill and experience of the whole team and devolve decision making closer to our patients.
This role comes at the most significant and challenging period of transition in the Trust’s history. It offers an outstanding opportunity to play a key role in shaping and influencing the future success of a major healthcare provider nationally and internationally. In appointing to this critical Board position we seek excellence from a world-class healthcare leader who can support our people to deliver Safe, Effective and Personal healthcare for every patient, every time.
Our Medical Director is retiring after a long and successful career with the Trust. We are seeking an inspirational individual who can engage with our 800+ consultants and the entire clinical workforce, embrace our values and vision, embed clinical leadership at all levels and develop our future clinical leaders. Building strong relationships with our partners and stakeholders including colleagues in Clinical Commissioning Groups and at the University, you will bring together the ideas and talents of our clinicians to continuously improve the quality of our services for patients whilst meeting significant productivity challenges.
As an Executive Director of the Trust Board you will inspire confidence through your knowledge and expertise ensuring that the Board of Directors keep Quality of Care at the core of decision making.
