Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest and most complex high-performing providers of acute, community and specialist health services in the country.  Across our 5 hospitals and our community services, we employ c17,000 staff and have a turnover of over £1.1 billion.  We are focussed on delivering the best clinical outcomes through patient centred services with a CQC rating of good across all five domains with many areas identified as outstanding.

Under the leadership of our out-going Chief Executive, Sir Andrew Cash OBE, we have developed our profile, reputation and services and we now fulfil a pivotal regional role.  This is not just as a system leader in health and care, but working particularly closely with the city’s two Universities, we seek to support  the life and prosperity of our City Region. 

The Board are now seeking an exceptional healthcare leader with the board-level experience and the personal credibility to contribute to a high-performing senior team in this complex clinically-led organisation as we develop within a changing local, regional and national context.  With a track record of successful leadership and experience of working at board level, you will be expected to contribute across the full breadth of the corporate agenda, as well as bringing highly visible leadership to nursing and midwifery colleagues and fostering a culture which values continuing personal development and that empowers staff to achieve excellence in the delivery of patient care. 

As the Trust’s lead Director for Infection Prevention and Control you will develop strategies to ensure effective infection prevention and control and prevent avoidable healthcare associated infections.  You will also line manage the Hotel Services Director and Estates Director.  We are a values-led organisation and our PROUD values support us in all our work.  The role will report to our new Chief Executive who we anticipate will be involved in the latter stages of this recruitment
