Chair Recruitment


Thank you for taking an interest in the role of Chair at Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

We have an international reputation as a leading specialist provider of cardiothoracic services, and we lead the way in providing high quality patient and family centred services, research and innovation. A twice-rated ‘Outstanding’ organisation, our vision is to be the best – leading and delivering outstanding heart and chest care and research. We are seeking to appoint our new Chair to take over the leadership of the Board and our Council of Governors in early 2022, at a time when the NHS is undergoing significant systemic change.

You will therefore need significant board-level experience, gained from a large or complex organisation; you should share our values and those of the NHS. You will be familiar with the role of Chair within a Board context and be experienced in providing strategic oversight and challenge to a highly performing Board of Directors. This is the opportunity to play a central role in the delivery of excellent healthcare to a population of 2.8 million spanning Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man. We hope this inspires you to read more about us as an organisation, and to learn more about the role itself, through this website.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Jane Tomkinson
Chief Executive
