South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation core purpose is to provide acute, community and tertiary services with the highest quality of patient care and experience. The James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough and the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton deliver over 1.5m patient contacts per year, with an additional 1.2m patient contacts undertaken by our community services. Alongside our commitment to research, our position as one of the country’s highest ranked medical training organisations.

We are an anchor tertiary provider – delivering world-class cardiothoracic, spinal, cochlear implant, neurosciences, gynaecology and urology care for patients across the region – and one of only three hospital trusts in the UK operating three robotic surgical systems. Our major trauma centre sees half of all trauma cases in the North East and Cumbria. 

Working closely with partners in health, local authorities and third sector to tackle health inequalities, particularly post COVID 19, to enable people to live healthier lives, developing new service models in which patients get more options, better support, and joined-up care at the right time in the best care setting.

These are exciting and challenging times for the Trust as it continues to develop its collaborative and partnership arrangements within the Tees Valley having recently appointed a Joint Chairman.

We now have an opportunity to refresh our Board and appoint two new Non-Executive Directors (NED) and 2 Associate Non-Executive Directors. The new Board members will provide constructive challenge, independence of thought, support diverse insight and strategic input, and ensure that we have robust systems of risk management and governance in place. Beyond this, they will need to demonstrate a strong alignment to our core values and direct experience of promoting and enabling diversity of thought and delivery.
