Introduction from Dr Michael Saunders, Public Governor and Chair of the Nominations Committee

As one of the largest and highest performing Foundation Trusts in the country, Newcastle Hospitals is unrelenting in its endeavour for clinical excellence, continuously seeking to improve the services provided for our patients and the communities we serve.

The independent health and social care regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated the Trust as ‘Outstanding’ on 6th June 2016. We are one of only a handful of Trusts in the country, and the first for a teaching or specialist (tertiary) healthcare provider, to receive an ‘Outstanding’ rating.

We are now seeking to appoint a Chair who will ensure that the Board is effective in delivering its role efficiently and effectively, and maintains the ‘going concern’ status of the organisation. 

Further details regarding how to apply, the job description and selection criteria are contained in this website, as well as relevant eligibility criteria. You will also find more details about our performance as an organisation and our governance structures in the following pages.

Please take time to absorb the information from this recruitment website.  If you believe you share our passion and drive for excellence and have the experience and gravitas we seek as Chair of our organisation, we look forward to receiving your application.

Dr Michael Saunders
Public Governor and Chair of the Nominations Committee
