Thank you for your interest in becoming a Non-Executive Director of the Board of Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (MCHFT).  I welcome your interest, and I hope that you will enjoy finding out more about our organisation and this role through this website.

MCHFT provides a comprehensive range of acute, maternity and child health services for an economically diverse and largely semi-rural population of circa 300,000 people. We operate from three main sites in Crewe, Northwich and Winsford serving the communities of Alsager, Crewe, Congleton, Holmes Chapel, Knutsford, Middlewich, Nantwich, Northwich, Sandbach, Winsford and areas bordering North Staffordshire. We are a well-regarded high performing Trust committed to quality, safety, continuous improvement and innovation. We are part of Central Cheshire Integrated Care Partnership, a unique local health partnership that provides a range of community health services for people across South Cheshire and Vale Royal.

With a new Chief Executive James Sumner appointed this year we are refreshing our strategy and ambition.  Working together with our partners in the wider health and social care system is essential in order to address our populations' future health and wellbeing needs.  With a backdrop of continued pressures on health and care budgets and rising demand for services we are continuing to advance the delivery of sustainable services through our integrated working agenda.  We are proud of our highly committed and talented workforce and as a Trust we are currently rated as ‘Good’ with the Care Quality Commission and are committed to a journey to achieving ‘Outstanding’.

At this exciting time, we are seeking a Non-Executive Director to contribute to the work of our Board of Directors and Council of Governors.   We are seeking an individual with a track record of successful leadership who shares our passion and focus on the provision of safe, high quality and sustainable services which meet the needs of our population. Already an experienced, motivated and highly skilled individual at board level and living within the local authority areas of Cheshire East or Cheshire West and Chester, you will bring additional expertise to complement our existing Board of Directors.  We are particularly keen to hear from leaders with experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Clinical leadership experience particularly within a primary care environment
  • Experience in leading information management and the digital transformation agenda in a large complex organisation
  • Leaders with experience of embedding innovation and continuous quality improvement within either the private, independent or other parts of the public sector 

I hope that you are attracted by the prospect of joining our Board and helping us to achieve and sustain excellent healthcare services for the benefit of the communities that we serve.

I would encourage you in the first instance to contact our recruitment partners at GatenbySanderson for an informal discussion; Joanna Riley, Emma Pickup or Roz Catlow-Patterson on 0113 205 6296.

I wish you well with your application.

Yours sincerely,

Dennis Dunn, MBE JP DL
Trust Chairman
