Medical Director

The retirement of our Medical Director, Dr Bradley offers an opportunity to join one of the largest Acute Trusts in England and make a major contribution to the achievement of our mission - ‘to provide the very best care for each patient on every occasion’.

Across our four hospital sites 9,000 staff provide services for the 850,000 residents living in our local communities. To improve the care we offer we are implementing a comprehensive clinical re-configuration programme, rolling out a major quality improvement and change management programme, working towards Foundation Trust status and actively engaging with our four clinical commissioning groups.

We have invested in medical leadership by strengthening the senior team, recruiting two full time Deputy Medical Directors and developing a cohort of clinical directors to lead service delivery through our 400 consultants and associated teams.

With an impressive track record of achievement in managing large clinical teams and experience gained at senior management/board level you will relish the challenge of delivering against clinical, operational and financial improvement targets as well as improving quality, patient care and providing outstanding leadership to our substantial medical workforce.

Communication and influencing skills and the ability to build strong internal and external working relationships are pre-requisites for success in this role.
