Medical Director

Arden, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Area Team

The fundamental aim of NHS England is to improve health outcomes for people in England. There is much to do in Arden, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. To achieve that aim, we are looking for a highly talented Medical Leader to join our Area Team to inspire and drive better outcomes for patients.

We believe the new approach we are taking to working will really make a difference and deliver the improved health outcomes we all want to see and the public deserves. Central to our ambition is to place the patients and the public at the heart of everything we do. We are what we want the NHS to be – open, evidence-based and inclusive, transparent about the decisions we make, the way we operate and the impact we have.

Grounded in the values and principles of the NHS Constitution, we are an organisation which shares ideas and knowledge, successes and failures, and listens carefully and thoughtfully to our own staff, to partner organisations and our wider stakeholders.

Arden, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Area Team are looking for an exceptionally capable and highly skilled individual to be part of our team as a Medical Director. As a senior, experienced and practising NHS clinician, you will have flair and energy to drive NHS England’s strategic objectives and ambitions forward. With a passion to improve the quality and effectiveness of clinical leadership, innovation, productivity and prevention, you will be a champion for patients and the communities we serve. Able to build strong internal and external working relationships, you will need to bring both clinical credibility and inspiration to enable excellence and drive out unwarranted variation.

As a key member of the Area Team, based in Worcester, you must have an excellent range of advanced leadership, communication, management and strategic skills. These may have been gained in either provider or commissioning organisations. You will embody the values and principles of the NHS Constitution and demonstrate these in making a significant contribution to leading the improvement of services for people who live in Arden, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Area Team.
