Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust (RSFT) is a clinically-led NHS Foundation Trust focused on providing world class, joined-up care for the people we serve across Guildford and Waverley; bridging the gap between hospital and community services. Our cancer centre provides diagnosis and treatment to patients across the wider Surrey and Sussex region and has been recognised as one of the UK’s leading centres.

Our Board is an inclusive and collegiate space, where colleagues support, but also challenge each other to deliver better outcomes and experiences for our staff and patients. We see ourselves as very much a learning organisation – keen to continuously improve through innovation, research and development. We are ambitious, but we are also clear that we will need help in achieving these ambitions. One element of this is the appointment of a new Non-Executive Director (NED) to join the Board.

Applicants must have a genuine commitment to patients and the promotion of excellent health care services; they must be able to embrace and champion the Trust’s values; and they must be able to add value, independence and rigour to strategy development. Beyond these more generic skills, we are specifically looking for an innovative, forward looking, and engaging NED, with the ability to Chair our Finance, Performance, and Transformation Committee. A successful candidate will also need to form the partnerships necessary with both internal and external stakeholders who help us deliver our goals.

We are keen to consider candidates who can also bring diversity of thought, background, and protected characteristics – while the Board as a whole currently has good age and gender diversity, we are less representative, for example, of the ethnic diversity we see in our staff and in the communities we serve.
