Dear Candidate,

Thank you for showing an interest in the post of Chair at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and for taking the time to review this microsite.

We are a progressive, integrated healthcare organisation with a turnover of over £318 million and I cannot think of a more interesting or exciting time to consider joining us to contribute to our strategic and operational challenges. With the devolution of health and social care in Greater Manchester, we are working closely with our local commissioners to ensure Bolton is a key partner in the Greater Manchester health economy. This ground-breaking shift is transforming how we and our partners deliver care to the population of Bolton and the Greater Manchester area through the Royal Bolton Hospital, other community-based sites and directly in our patients’ homes.

In bringing leadership to our Board of Directors and to our Council of Governors, our Chair needs to represent all we stand for.  On the one hand, this is a role which demands experience of governance in large and complex organisations, with leadership experience gained at board level; yet it is also a role which requires you to help us fulfil our role within the wider health and care economy, and this demands the ability to forge dynamic partnerships.  It does not require prior experience of the NHS but we will be keen to learn about your passion for supporting the well-being of others and the value your experience could add to our Board.

We hope this role offers many things: the ability to contribute to the healthcare of our communities and the intellectual stimulation of working with an extremely talented and dedicated workforce.  Whatever the reasons for your interest, we hope this website provides an insight into our work, our values and the demands of this role. 

Please contact Robin Staveley of GatenbySanderson on 0113 205 6292 if you want to learn more or for a confidential discussion. 

We look forward to hearing from you. 

Yours sincerely,

Esther Steel
Associate Director of Corporate Governance & Public Engagement and Trust Secretary, on behalf of the Council of Governors
