Director of Nursing

Posted - 1 October 2019
Role: Director of Nursing
Location: Lincolnshire
Organisation: United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS Trust
Closing Date: 28 October 2019

Vacancy: Director of Nursing
Salary: VSM
We are looking for a caring, passionate, inspirational and dedicated leader to join United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS Trust as our new Director of Nursing. We provide care to a population of over 700,000 people and believe they deserve care that is patient-centred, safe, of high quality and delivered with compassion and respect.
There is much to be proud of in our Trust. We have examples of leading-edge care, from our heart centre to the end-of-life hospice service. However, we recognise that to consistently meet our aspirations for patients and to do so within our budget, we need to transform and to do so at pace.
We have the ingredients to do so; fantastic staff and strong partnerships within the Lincolnshire Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) and with our local university, including the newly launched medical school. We are looking forward to engaging with the public and our staff formally around the STP review of acute service provision in Lincolnshire.
This means that our new Director of Nursing will join us at a challenging time. She or he will require inspirational leadership skills and capability to sustain and build on our progress to date, playing their full part in our improvement journey as a member of the Board.
We welcome applications from individuals who can demonstrate a track-record in tackling wicked problems in a collaborative and system-orientated fashion. Above all we wish to assess leadership skills and values as much as professional expertise. This is a key appointment for our patients, our staff, our senior leadership team and our regional health and care system.
The Trust is at a pivotal point in its history and this presents a great leadership opportunity for a leader intent on making a difference.
The closing date for applications is 9:00am on 28th October 2019.
