Thank you for your interest in working with us at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. We are looking for an exceptional individual to join us as our Chief Medical Officer. This exciting and demanding role represents a fantastic opportunity for a motivated and inspirational leader to join us on our journey to improve patient care and help deliver our agreed priorities.

As an experienced clinician with proven leadership experience and skills, you will be joining the trust at an important time. We are proud of how our staff have met the demands of the Covid-19 pandemic and have worked hard to recover all services and meet ever increasing levels of patient demand. Whilst the pandemic presented unprecedented challenges for our organisation, it also provided a platform for change, innovation and partnership working that will help ensure our long-term financial and clinical stability.

Your role as the Chief Medical Officer will be key to ensuring we can continue to work successfully alongside other clinical leaders across the South East London Integrated Care System as a community focused provider of consistently high-quality local and acute care. You will have a key role in developing the role of the Trust, as part of the South East London Acute Provider Collaborative, to actively contribute to the vitality of local communities and the reduction of health inequalities across this system.

We are looking for an inspirational and collaborative leader who is able to quickly build credibility within our organisation and across our health and care system. The successful candidate will have a track record of inclusive, progressive and innovative leadership, and will be motivated by our dynamic, complex and challenging environment. They will also be excited by our improvement journey in recent years and the potential opportunity to build on this further, as we maximise opportunities to invest in health and care services across our system, creating better outcomes for our local populations.

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust is a community-focused provider of local and acute care, providing high quality services to over one million people living across the London boroughs of Lewisham, Greenwich and Bexley.
