NHS Providers chair

Dame Gill Morgan will reach the end of her second term of office as NHS Providers chair this year. The board has therefore started the process of recruiting her successor to ensure a well-managed transition.

A board sub-group has been established to run the process. Following interviews with three firms, we have appointed Odgers to act as our search consultants. You can view the candidate brief below. A copy is live on Odgers’ website

Chairing NHS Providers in the next phase of our development will be an exciting and interesting opportunity. We are looking for someone with a successful, compelling, track record as a leader in a politically and strategically complex environment. The candidate will demonstrate the ability to influence and build productive relationships; swiftly gain credibility with members; and understand the nuances and complexity of operating within a membership organisation with a trustee model.

We are keen to attract a wide, diverse, high calibre field of candidates. If you have any suggestions for candidates please share them with Carmel Gibbons and Ruth Lewis at Odgers  on 020 7529 6314 or carmel.gibbons@odgersberndtson.com and ruth.lewis@odgersberndtson.com.

Gill has been an outstanding NHS Providers chair and we will miss her enormously. We will obviously want to create an opportunity to formally thank her later in the year. We aim to make the appointment at the NHS Providers board meeting in July and will write to you as soon as we know who the new chair will be.

If you have any questions please contact Christine Outram, NHS Providers Vice Chair and Senior Independent Director on chris.outram@christie.nhs.uk.
