Our patients are always at the heart of everything we do, and this post will lead on ensuring that the trust estate continues to provide a safe, compliant, energy efficient, value for money - high quality environments for our patients, colleagues and members of the public which are co-located in collaboration with other healthcare providers.
This is an exciting time to join our estates and facilities team and drive forward the review of our new 2020-2025 Estates Strategy, which continues to build upon our success stories of our previous years.
The trust has engaged with multiple local healthcare organisations to encompass a more collaborative strategy which supports a continued and consistent high quality estate.
