Following the retirement of the existing postholder, we are seeking an exceptional candidate with the enthusiasm to lead change across our medical workforce as we continue to improve our services to patients.

As a member of the Executive Team and the Trust Board, you will contribute towards the overall development of our strategic direction and be accountable for the Trust’s performance and governance as a statutory organisation.

We are part of the first wave of accountable care systems and so at the forefront of a nationwide action to provide joined up, better co-ordinated care breaking down the barriers between GPs and hospitals, physical and mental healthcare, social care and the NHS.

We have some of the best patient access times in the UK, providing excellent services to our rural population of 230,000.

Our busy modern hospital provides a full range of district general services including an accident and emergency department, and links with satellite units in five community hospitals.

Dorchester is the traditional county town of West Dorset, boasting outstanding scenery and a rugged coastline.
