Lanarkshire NHS Board - Chair

Scottish Ministers are looking to appoint a new Chair to Lanarkshire NHS Board.

This is an exciting and challenging time to join the Board of NHS Lanarkshire. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on society and NHS Lanarkshire has had to re-prioritise its services and activities. This has also provided opportunities to support innovation and develop sustainable services with high quality, person centred, safe and effective care firmly at the heart of our strategic plans.

Key priorities for the Board include refreshing our Healthcare Strategy “Achieving Excellence” and delivering our exciting vision to build a new state of the art University Hospital Monklands, whilst building on our culture of working in partnership with our staff and communities. However, this pandemic has also exacerbated the health inequalities within our society and we must ensure that addressing health inequalities is integral to anything we do.

The role

You will have the experience required for this significant appointment and will play a central leadership role in guiding the strategies which address the health priorities and health and care needs of the people of Lanarkshire. If you have what it takes to fulfil this rewarding and challenging role, we would like to hear from you.

You will be accountable to Scottish Ministers for leading the Board, comprising non-executive and executive members, which will improve, sustain and protect the health of people across Scotland. You will understand and promote diversity.

As well as being able to show that you understand the organisation and the environment in which it operates, you must also be able to demonstrate the following:

• Strategic Leadership
• Governance and Accountability
• Constructive/Supportive Challenge and Influencing
• Communication

NHS Scotland’s values are at the heart of everything that we do. As Chair of the Board, you will not only need to have the right skills, knowledge and experience for the role, but also be able to demonstrate behaviour aligned to these values. The NHS Scotland values as outlined in the NHS Scotland Workforce Strategy Everyone Matters: 2020 Workforce Vision are:

• care and compassion;
• dignity and respect;
• openness, honesty and responsibility; and,
• quality and teamwork.

For further information and to apply for this appointment, please see:

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 29th September.
