Aaron Cummins, Chief Executive

WELCOME FROM OUR CHIEF EXECUTIVE

At University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, we are looking for the brightest and best to lead the Trust, and to join together with our colleagues in Community and Primary Care as we continue on our integration of NHS services through Bay Health & Care Partners, to provide better care, better health, delivered sustainably.

The Chair will have a crucial role to play in influencing the future delivery of NHS services to our communities in the Bay area, navigating the Board of Directors through the system-wide developments.  They will need to drive delivery against our key challenges both within the Trust and in the wider health economy.

They will be pivotal in overseeing improvement in our Care Quality Commission rating, particularly in ensuring quality of our care is “outstanding” and that well-led is as “good”.

They will also have an opportunity to establish legacy, following the announcement of seed funding in the Health Infrastructure Plan to develop a business case for significant capital investment in our estate.  This is therefore a pivotal time for UHMB.

We need to ensure the work the Trust undertakes is safe and effective today and ready to tackle the challenges of the future. As a Board, we are therefore looking for a strong, passionate and values-based Chair to move the Trust with an unwavering commitment to our leadership philosophy, centred on putting patients first, public and employee engagement and sustainability.

The Trust’s history, as well as the unique geographical challenges of the locality, makes this a really exceptional opportunity for a leader who can engage with colleagues and patients to develop and present a clear and strategic vision for the Trust and the Bay area.

It’s a really exciting time to be an NHS leader in Morecambe Bay – come and join us!
