Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

Non Executive Director(s)


Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust delivers a comprehensive range of physical and mental health services principally, but not exclusively, to the 700,000 population of Northamptonshire. We employ around 3,500 people and provide both inpatient and community based services.

We are seeking to recruit two Non-Executive Directors to join our well established Board to drive forward our strategy to build a strong, sustainable organisation that provides joined up pathways of care which meet the individual needs of our patients. Possessing strong leadership skills, vision and expertise, you will play a pivotal role in the success of the Trust bringing to bear your experience in commerce or as a health or social care professional.

Having current or recent Board level experience, you will understand the complexities of working in a multi-site complex operation. You will also bring high levels of personal and business integrity and ideally a track record of experience in change management. With the ability to challenge and debate constructively, you will easily demonstrate your high levels of understanding and commitment to patients, carers and the community.

To be eligible for appointment, applicants must live within one of the electoral wards of Northamptonshire or within the last 10 years, have accessed the services of the Trust or its predecessor bodies either as a patient or as a carer of a patient.

For an informal discussion regarding this role, contact Helene Usherwood or Melanie Shearer of Gatenby Sanderson on 020 7426 3972 or visit for more information.

Closing Date: Monday 2nd June
Final Panel: 16th and 17th July
