Alder Hey is a very special organisation. We care for over 200,000 children a year mostly at our main site in West Derby, Liverpool as well as increasingly also from a range of community and hospital outreach settings across the North West of England, Wales and the Isle of Man. We are one of only four specialist children's trusts in England and the first accredited by the World Health Organisation as a public health promoting paediatric hospital. We are also a highly complex high-performing Trust running 62 service lines including A&E, community and mental health services. 

The role of Executive Medical Director spans many areas which are critical for our continued success: you will lead the development of our clinical strategy and, working closely with our Chief Nurse, you will lead the development of our quality strategy; you will provide professional leadership to our medical workforce; working with our higher education partners you will enhance and encourage innovation and research activity across Liverpool in support of Alder Hey’s vision; lastly you will develop our education and training strategies. 

This role represents an exceptional opportunity to apply your clinical leadership skills at executive director level in one of the country’s most iconic Trusts. We are seeking an experienced leader, someone who can command the respect of fellow clinicians, present a strong and credible external face of the organisation, and bring sound judgement to the board.  It is a role that is suitable to clinical leaders from many specialities including but not limited to paediatrics.  It will require the ability to grasp operational detail at the same time as thinking strategically; you will need to deal with high levels of complexity, establishing and developing external partnerships that realise the benefits of our superb new working environment.
