Dear Colleague,

Thank you for your interest in the role of Non-Executive Director (NED) here at Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust (GCS).

GCS provides services to a population of 600,000 within the diverse County of Gloucestershire. The County, known for its great beauty, has some affluent areas and also has significant areas of deprivation with the associated variation in health and life expectancy. The local health and care system benefits greatly from having coterminous NHS providers as well as a single Clinical Commissioning Group and County Council. Along with our partners, GCS has ambitious plans to transform local services to create patient focused, integrated care which is sustainable into the future. Our Board is key in driving this change.

The Trust vision, ‘To be the service that people trust to understand them and organise their services around their lives’, is summarised in our strap line ‘Understanding You’. For us, hearing and acting on the views of the people we serve and collaborating with them to find new solutions is central to the way we want to work. The Trust provides a range of community services from hundreds of dispersed sites including our seven community hospitals, GP surgeries and schools. Our colleagues are drawn from a range of disciplines including nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, podiatry, speech and language therapy and medicine. Working in multidisciplinary teams, often alongside social care colleagues, they are delivering some nationally recognised innovative services. You will enjoy reading more about these on our website or by following us on Twitter or Facebook. We are proud of our achievements as a Trust and we believe we have an excellent track record of delivering high quality care alongside good stewardship of resources.  As the NHS continues to face unprecedented challenge with increasing population need and demands on our resources, there has never been a more exciting and challenging time to take up this crucial leadership role.

We are looking to recruit a Non-Executive Director with a strong financial background. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

I am delighted that you are interested in this role and would invite you to contact me in confidence for further discussion.

Yours sincerely,

Ingrid Barker
