Excellence Every Time

Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust cares for the population of Harrogate and the local area as well as across North Yorkshire and Leeds.  We also provide children’s services in Northumberland, County Durham, Darlington, Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees, Gateshead and Sunderland.  We retain an enduring ambition to deliver outstanding care and excellence every time, with patient, families and service users at the centre of service delivery, both in the acute and community settings.

Our values describe and define our culture: in everything we do we strive for kindness, integrity, teamwork and equality.  Our strategic objectives include the delivery of high quality healthcare, working in partnership to deliver integrated care, and to ensure we manage resources to achieve clinical and financial sustainability. 

With one of our Non-Executive Directors coming to the end of their term and with Sarah Armstrong being appointed as our new Chair, we are seeking inspiring and experienced leaders to join our Board, supporting and challenging it to deliver outstanding care for our communities. Working closely with our Chief Executive, Executives, Chair and Council of Governors, the roles touch all parts of our organisation, demonstrating visible and ethical leadership.

To succeed in these roles, you will need experience of working at board level in a complex organisation or equivalent experience, with demonstrable strategic experience. With an understanding of complex organisational change and partnership working, we are especially looking for candidates with experience in tackling health inequalities through public health, research, health economics or innovation, or candidates from a clinical background. Most importantly, you should share our values and want to join an ambitious organisation which is committed to Excellence Every Time.
