Welcome to the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust (NLAG), and thank you for taking an interest in this exciting role.

There has never been a more interesting or challenging time to join the NHS, and NLAG. After years of growth the NHS is now facing its biggest ever financial challenge in delivering the significant workforce changes which are needed to ensure we have the right people in place for the future. The way in which our services are commissioned is changing and this will mean we need to take a more innovative approach to organisational changes, especially in our workforce.

Northern Lincolnshire & Goole NHS Foundation Trust is currently in Special Measures and is supported by our regulators. We are on an improvement journey which is gathering pace where the focus is on the implementation and delivery of quality outcomes for our patients within a financial envelope which poses significant challenges to the organisation.

As a Non-Executive Director you will play a key role in moving our organisation forward; developing strategies, providing challenge and assuring quality.

This is a challenging role within a fascinating environment which offers a unique opportunity to contribute to your local community.

If you would like to explore this opportunity further, please feel free to call me for an informal discussion.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
