- Job Ref:
Locala is a not-for-profit social enterprise which provides a variety of NHS community healthcare services to people in Kirklees, Calderdale and Bradford, ranging from health visitors to physiotherapy, and sexual health to district nursing, as well as dental care, school nurses, and foot care. We are an employee-owned organisation and as a social enterprise we are in the great position of having the flexibility to tailor our services to meet the needs of our communities with any financial surplus reinvested straight back into supporting those we serve. We work closely with GPs, Local Authorities, local NHS organisations and Voluntary and Community Sector partners to deliver a co-ordinated approach to care and support to our communities. We are increasingly playing an influential role within our Integrated Care System as the focus on successful delivery of care closer to home continues to increase.
Over the last four years we have been on a significant journey of improvement from CQC ‘Inadequate’ to a rating of ‘Good’ last year. We are now focused on embedding a ‘Just’ culture of learning and improvement which will help us to deliver ‘Outstanding’ services to the populations we serve and to truly value and empower our dedicated workforce.
At this critical time for health and care services we are seeking a new Non-Executive Director with strong financial acumen to join our Board and help oversee the achievement of our vision. We are particularly keen to hear from those with experience and insight in building relationships with commissioning partners, knowledge of healthcare contracting and who have a depth of understanding of our local or regional health and care system. These skills and experience will be increasingly critical as we seek to increase our role as a collaborator in the system. A board level leader, with experience in large, complex organisations, you will bring a robust understanding of corporate governance and effective risk management; able to hold an independent perspective and bring a clear and positive communication style. Our communities are rich in diversity, and we are keen to hear from leaders who will broaden our Board’s knowledge and experience.
