University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust (UHD) are looking for two new clever, thoughtful and curious Non-Executive Directors (NED) to join our lively and collegiate Board team and help steer us through a year of transition to aching our vision of providing excellent healthcare for our patients and wider community and be a great place to work, now and for future generations.

We have an exciting future ahead as we work to Transform Care Together. This year sees us embedding our Patient First methodology and investing in significant energy reduction to achieve our target of 80% decarbonisation by 2030. Next year we will be opening the BEACH building, creating a major emergency care hospital; and by 2026 we will have created the largest planned care hospital in England and embedded an electronic health record across the whole of Dorset and into Somerset.

None of this can be achieved in isolation – we work best when we work collaboratively, both outside the Trust with partners from other health and care organisations across our Dorset ICB, and internally with our 10,000+ committed and fabulous colleagues. Our two new NED colleagues will need to bring diversity of thought, experience and professional background and demonstrate a clear commitment to our values and purpose. In terms of specific skills, we are keen to bring in more financial and commercial expertise with a strong focus on delivering transformation.

If you would like to have an initial conversation, please contact our recruitment partners Rhiannon Smith or Jenny Adrian at Hunter Healthcare on 07939 250362 or by email at
