Thank you for your interest in joining our Trust.
I strongly believe in the importance of clinical leadership and I support clinicians with ambition and passion for their field.
I am proud of our reputation for delivering high quality specialist care, as well as for our research and innovation. Our vision is ‘great healthcare from great people’ and our pursuit of excellence lies at the heart of all that we do.
We have much to be proud of; but recognise that there is also much more to do. As a Trust we do not underestimate the journey ahead but we face it with ambition and a single minded determination and commitment to improve the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve and the experiences of our staff and our patients. Much has changed at East Kent over the last twelve months, including the appointment of new Board Members. I was delighted that Tracey Fletcher joined us earlier this year as our Chief Executive, she brings significant experience and a focus on transformation and making things better for both staff and patients, as we focus on improvement across our services.
“At East Kent Hospitals, we have a unique opportunity to build a pioneering healthcare model that meets the needs of our rural and coastal communities and furthers our growing connections in research and education, to create something special.
If you can see yourself sharing our ambition and our commitment to transform all our services, we would love to hear from you.
Niall Dickson CBE, Chair
