NHS trust non-executive director sought

Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) is looking for a non-executive director to help shape its mental health and learning disability services for the future.

The successful candidate will have a genuine commitment to improving patient care. They will be jointly responsible for setting the Trust's objectives and scrutinising its performance over the next three years.

NHS foundation trust non-executive directors serve a term of three years and can only serve a maximum of six years ensuring regular refreshing, independent challenge and new ideas. The new non-executive director will start their appointment around August 2018.

LPFT Chair, Paul Devlin said: "We are seeking an individual to bring support and constructive challenge, and help lead the strategic direction of the Trust.

"Being a non-executive director is demanding, but very rewarding. You have the chance to join a highly-capable board that prides itself on keeping patients at the heart of its decisions."

The Trust will particularly welcome applications from people with disabilities; from black, asian and minority ethnic backgrounds and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) people in order to help it better understand and serve its local communities.

Anyone interested in applying can download an information pack via the Trust website by visiting www.lpft.nhs.uk/work-for-us/current-vacancies or call 01522 309196.
