A message from the Trust Chair – Selina Ullah
I am delighted that you are expressing an interest in joining the Board of Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust as a Non-Executive Director. It is an exciting time to be joining our Trust; we are a values-led Trust at a pivotal moment in our history, with a range of transformation programmes across our estates along with our focus on continuous improvement.

I hope that you find the details contained here of interest to you and we look forward to receiving your application. The Trust has comprehensive induction programme for this role, equally we are committed to the development of our people.
As a member of our unitary Board, our Non-Executive Directors bring support and constructive challenge, and help lead the strategic direction of the Trust. We are a key part of the developing Derbyshire Integrated Care System – we are a Trust that is growing with a strong approach to interconnective working, taking on new regional services, reflecting our ambition to become stronger in system working along with our partners. Because of this, we are particularly keen to hear from potential candidates who can bring a broader perspective to the Board around the wider determinants of health and wellbeing, a strong vision to support the Trust’s role as an anchor institution and have experience of developing partnerships at an organisational level.
I would particularly welcome applications from Black and Minority Ethnic people, people with disabilities, and LGBT+ people, who are all underrepresented at this level in the organisation.
