Two new trustees sought for Trinity 

Royal Trinity Hospice is looking for two Trustees with a clinical background to join the Board of Trustees:

  • One Trustee to take a lead on the strategic oversight of the nationally-mandated Patient Safety Incident Response Framework
  • One Trustee to take a lead on the strategic oversight of the organisation’s clinical governance.

Do you have the skills we need to join us on the Board of Royal Trinity Hospice?

Trinity delivers high quality services from our inpatient unit in Clapham Common and out in the community, wherever patients call home. Our Patient Services Committee provides oversight and assurance of our services and contributes expertise to decisions on healthcare delivery in a complex environment, including the relationship between the NHS and charitable sectors. As part of our strategic aim over the coming years to expand our reach and impact, we are seeking two new Trustees who will join the Patients Services Committee and support this work.

The new Trustees will be experienced clinicians with experience at Board level. We employ a range of clinical professions within our multidisciplinary team and as such, will consider all clinical professionals as applicants. The new Trustees will bring particular expertise in clinical governance and/or patient safety with knowledge of the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework (PSIRF). 

The Board welcomes those seeking their first Trustee role, as long as they share its commitment to delivering Trinity's goals. Candidates should demonstrate an appreciation of the role of voluntary/charitable organisations in the health and social care environment, as well as an understanding of the culture of the charity sector.

Role specification

The new Trustees will use their specific skill set and relevant clinical experience to help the Board make strategic decisions and provide strategic oversight regarding the quality of healthcare provided by the organisation. They will be committed to serving the Board which in turn serves its community and influences the hospice, health and social care system.

The incoming Trustees will have a strong alignment with Trinity's vision, mission and values and proactively help to work towards our success and growth. In addition to formal Board meetings, the new Trustees will be willing to undertake informal engagement with the charity, including providing advice on an ad hoc basis to the management and Patient Services team.

Trustees are expected to use their specific knowledge and experience to help the Board reach sound decisions; assist the senior leadership team with advice as required; and keep informed about, and support as appropriate, the activities of the organisation.

The roles are unremunerated but reasonable travel expenses are reimbursable.

We are partnering with Nurole to fill these new Trustee roles. Please direct any expressions of interest or questions directly to Nurole by clicking here or emailing [email protected].
