County Durham and Darlington Foundation Trust serves 600,000 people living in County Durham and the surrounding areas.  The Trust provides a comprehensive range of acute and community based services across two acute hospitals, community hospitals and 80 community bases.  Already a high performing Trust, we are investing in improvements in facilities and service developments, along integrated pathways focusing on patients' outcomes and experiences. We are looking to strengthen our non-executive team with the appointment of an exceptional candidate.

If you have the temperament, ability and experience to work at board level, and can offer a breadth of relevant skills and experience, we can offer an excellent opportunity to use your talents to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.  You will need to have the credibility to constructively challenge senior managers and be able work collaboratively within and beyond the Trust to help develop and deliver our strategic plans.  We are currently under represented by females and people from ethnic minority backgrounds and would welcome applications from these groups.
