A message from the Chair

Alan McCarthyThank you for your interest in joining our Board as a Non-Executive Director / Associate Non-Executive Director.

At University Hospitals Sussex (UHSussex), we are proud to put our patients first and our 20,000 colleagues across Sussex are passionate about providing excellent patient care, every time for our 1.8 million patients across Sussex in our seven hospitals and additional satellite facilities and community services.

We are ambitious – and in the last year we have developed a new clinical operating model, appointed a new CEO, enhanced our leadership team and set out the ongoing improvements we want to make as a key part of the new ‘integrated care system’ for Sussex.

As a university hospitals trust, we have strong partnerships with local teaching and training organisations, including the universities of Sussex, Brighton and Chichester and the Brighton and Sussex Medical School.  We draw on these partnerships to secure a strong pipeline of future talent as well as investing in research and academic excellence.

Our greatest strength is our people. Our colleagues are dedicated and compassionate. Through our Patient First strategy we are equipping all our staff with the tools and skills they need to drive continuous improvement. In this way, we are able to provide fulfilling careers at the Trust, helping us to continue to attract and retain the brightest and best.

Our 3Ts (Teaching, Trauma and Tertiary Care) development at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, the first stage of which is due to complete next year, will enable us to offer brand new, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, providing improved patient care and experience while enhancing our research capabilities.

Our focus is now on enhancing and diversifying our non-executive team and we are looking to appoint a number of new non-executive and associate non-executive directors. We are particularly interested in candidates with a background in one or more of the following:

  • Finance
  • Clinical
  • Digital transformation
  • Service transformation
  • Voluntary sector/ wider public sector.

Whatever your professional background, you must also share a passion for patient care and demonstrate an alignment with our values. In addition, we would particularly welcome candidates from groups currently under-represented at board level because we value the diversity of our colleagues and actively champion an inclusive culture, believing everyone should feel free to be their authentic self in the workplace.

If you think you have the drive and commitment to make a real difference and would like to learn more please contact Jenny Adrian on 07939 250362 or email jadrian@hunter-healthcare.com at our recruitment partners Hunter Healthcare.
