The Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation (RUH Bath) Trust provides acute and specialist care for over half a million people in Bath, and the surrounding towns and villages in North East Somerset and Western Wiltshire, plus a broader community regionally and nationally for specialist services. We have a workforce of almost 5,000 and a turnover in excess of £320m. Our Trust operates from a main campus, 52-acre site and from the RNHRD site 1.5 miles away in the Centre of Bath. We are determined continuously to improve the quality of services we provide and to make the most of our fantastic setting.
RUH Bath is a vibrant organisation with a reputation for delivering high quality services, though increasingly this is set against a backdrop of the fundamental challenges facing the sector. The future will be about organisations working together to deliver the best quality experience and outcomes for patients in a sustainable way. We are at the forefront of shaping the landscape of healthcare delivery locally, whilst continuing to lead ground breaking, nationally recognised services.
Weâre seeking a Chair who can add value to our experienced Board and Council of Governors, bringing a depth of leadership expertise gained in a similarly large and complex environment. Comfortable navigating strategic issues, the successful individual will need sophisticated influencing and negotiation skills along with sound judgement and common sense. Most importantly weâre need someone who can connect with people; our staff, patients, carers, partners and communities, someone who shares our passion to deliver Outstanding Care.
