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 Bay Health & Care Partners, the INTEGRATED CARE PARTNERSHIP for North Lancashire and South Cumbria, as we continue on our integration of health and care services to provide better care, better health, delivered sustainability.

The Chief Operating Officer will have a crucial role to play in redesigning delivery of hospital and community services to communities in the Bay area, with full accountability for their operational management and performance delivery.  As the lead director for Estates & Facilities, including capital planning and investment, they will also have a key role in developing a ‘once in a lifetime’ estates strategy that fully utilises opportunities presented through the HIP2 funding.

As a member of the senior leadership team they will be pivotal in overseeing improvement in our Care Quality Commission rating as we journey towards “outstanding”, with a reputation built as a great place to be cared for; a great place to work.

We are commencing the recruitment process at a time of unprecedented challenge for the NHS as we anticipate and plan for a significant impact through COVID 19, which will present longer-term challenges for recovery of quality and performance trajectories.  As Chief Operating Officer, you will have a key role in developing and delivering service strategies that achieve this.

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 deliver the 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!
