This is a unique opportunity to help shape the future of The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH) by sharing your talents and expertise to help transform the trust and make a positive difference to your community.
SaTH is the main provider of acute hospital services for around half a million people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales. The Trust’s strategy and decision-making is underpinned by its framework of values: Proud to Care, Make It Happen, We Value Respect, Together We Achieve.
Their main service locations are the Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) in Shrewsbury. The PRH opened in 1989 and is now the main centre for inpatient women and children’s services. RSH opened in 1977 and became the main centre for acute and emergency surgery in 2012. The Lingen Davies Centre opened in the same year.
SaTH is recruiting two Non-executive Directors (NEDs) and an Associate NED to complement and enhance the skills on its Board of Directors. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and experience to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.
The roles advertised are varied and the successful candidates will be involved in a diverse range of Board activity including chairing the Audit Committee and sitting on other committees such as Quality & Safety and Workforce.
The Trust is entering an exciting phase and they have much to do. They have a strong focus on consistently securing the basics in all areas of performance. In addition, the recently announced investment of £312 million into the reconfiguration of their hospitals presents tremendous opportunities to improve healthcare and outcomes not just for this generation, but for generations to come.
