Non Executive Directors

Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust
Time commitment for NEDs averages five days per month
£14,000 per annum

The Trust provides community and inpatient physical health, mental health and learning disability services for the people of Gloucestershire of all ages. It was created in 2019 as the result of two good trusts coming together as equal partners. We are intent on delivering the aspirations set out in our five-year strategy, Better Care Together - With You, For You. In achieving our mission of enabling people to live the best lives they can, we are committed to delivering excellent, high-quality services and to being an integral part of the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve.


Thank you for your interest in joining the Board of Gloucestershire Health & Care NHS Foundation Trust. 

We’re transforming our services by co-producing what we do with the people and communities we serve, building on their strengths and using their insights to drive change. 

We have a clear focus on tackling inequalities and promoting inclusion. 

Forward thinking and ambitious, we are using quality improvement methodology and the best available technology to provide excellent quality services that enhance access and choice. 

We take our position as an anchor institution seriously and have clear ambitions to be sustainable and to contribute to the wellbeing of our vibrant local economy.

As we enter the next crucial phase of development we’re looking for two new Non-Executive Directors. 

You will share our passion for community health services, and our vision and values, and bring the specific skills and perspectives we need to keep moving forward.

One new appointee will contribute through deep personal experience gained in a commercial setting, ideally in digital transformation. The second will chair our Audit and Assurance Committee and will already be a trusted senior finance professional with board-level experience.

Whatever your background, you’ll be joining a strong and diverse team of people who will welcome your perspective and insight. Who you are and how you think will matter most of all.

Applications are welcome from all sections of the community, particularly people from ethnic minorities, women, people with a disability or long-term condition, and LGBTQ+ communities who are underrepresented at senior levels within the organisation.
