What is a Non-Executive Director in the NHS
Boards are always looking for talented people to be effective in chair and non-executive director roles in the NHS. To make the best possible decisions NHS boards need diverse, inclusive and compassionate leadership. Boards made up of people with a mix of experience and skills gained from a range of backgrounds and lived experience bring fresh ideas, greater challenge and more robust decision making. All you need is to understand needs and priorities of your local communities and to be able to hold the confidence of patients and the public. As they are currently under-represented in chair and non-executive roles there is a particularly emphasis on seeking women, people from the local black and minority ethnic communities and disabled people.

It costs nothing to speak to us. It might be the best thing you do and it might benefit the NHS enormously with your participation.
