Therefore we are seeking an individual who can both deliver a Quality and Safe service in the present whilst embracing and leading change for the future.

The multidisciplinary nature of CCC is reflected in the leadership team you will be joining. Applications are invited from Allied Health Professionals or Nurses. The successful candidate will hold their professional identity proudly, but lightly, because leading across professions is guaranteed in this role.

Main duties of the job

This role will focus on the delivery of care in community, hospice and ward based settings managing nursing teams. It will involve integration into wider community goals and support integrated care pathways in primary and secondary care.

Candidates will have experience in a leadership role within a planned or unplanned care service. The successful post holder will role model the values of LCHS, be motivated and committed to delivering our clinical strategy, and understand our role as a key partner in delivering health and social care in Lincolnshire. The successful candidate will be responsible for providing assurance against delivery, including performance management, governance, budget management, contract management, professional leadership and business planning. Utilising a range of specialist skills, partnership working and the ability to work at pace is key. As a supportive compassionate leader, you will need to be flexible and resilient to promote and maintain high performing teams.

There are a number of different services in the portfolio the successful candidate could lead following discussion with the existing Clinical Services Leads.
