Dear Colleague

Thank you for your interest in applying to become the Chair of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre is one of just 3 Cancer Specialist Foundation Trusts nationally providing high quality cancer care to the population of Merseyside and Cheshire and beyond.  As one of the largest networked cancer treatment providers in the UK, we continue to deliver care which is compassionate and effective. We are proud that we are recognised as consistently performing to very high standards. To achieve the best outcomes we work closely with many partners across the whole healthcare system and ensure that patients receive the best cancer care for them as close as possible to their home.

Some years ago we engaged with patients, staff, commissioners and the wider community to develop a strategy for Transforming Cancer Care in the region. One element of that was a major investment in a new cancer hospital in Liverpool. The new hospital is now well advanced and is due to open in 2020. The completion of the new Hospital, transfer of staff and delivery of a new model of service delivery across the Region are major challenges and opportunities.

With these exciting developments in progress, we have now prepared an ambitious new strategy to continue the transformation of Cancer Care through to 2022 and looking beyond to 2027. We are currently sharing this with our partners and stakeholders across the region recognising that none of our ambitions for excellence – whether relating to excellent care, research or supporting our staff, can be achieved in isolation from the others.

The Trust has established innovative business models to support it in the delivery of its vision. These include a joint-venture and two wholly owned subsidiaries. We will continue to evolve these in the changing landscape of the health economy across Merseyside and Cheshire.

As the Chair you will lead the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre team of dedicated staff, volunteers and governors, building on the culture and commitment that is at the heart of the Trust’s on-going success.

The Trust’s strategy is ambitious. It will be essential that you lead the Board and bring your full range of experience to support our expansion and innovation in these challenging - and exciting - times for The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

You will have the vision, enthusiasm and motivation to improve cancer services across Cheshire & Merseyside. Research and innovation will be key areas of focus as you lead the Board of Directors in ensuring that the Trust promotes and markets itself as a centre of excellence for the 21st Century.

We look forward to meeting candidates who feel that they share the Trust’s ambitions and values as we deliver the agreed strategy.
