Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust provides physical, mental health and social care for people of all ages across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Swindon, Wiltshire, Bath and North East Somerset.
With more than 6000 dedicated and hardworking staff members operating in community settings, hospitals and increasingly in people homes, we aspire to deliver Outstanding Care to all of the communities we serve.
We still face significant challenges ahead in meeting the growing demand for care in the context of financial constraints. We’re facing these challenges head on by transforming the way we work, developing new and existing partnerships to deliver services as well as looking to technology and innovation to improve. Rated ‘Good’ by our regulator CQC, we attach great importance to feedback and learning in order to continually improve.
We’re seeking a Chair who can add value to our experienced Board and Council of Governors, bringing a depth of leadership expertise gained in a similarly large and complex environment. Comfortable navigating strategic issues, the successful individual will need sophisticated influencing and negotiation skills along with sound judgement and common sense. Most importantly we’re need someone who can connect with people; our staff, service users, carers, partners and communities, someone who shares our passion to deliver Outstanding Care.
