Who we are
King's College Hospital Charity are dedicated to supporting life-changing care at King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, across south-east London and Kent from five locations (encompassing the boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham and Bromley).
King’s patients are at the heart of everything we do. We make the best care possible by raising money for cutting-edge equipment and facilities, innovative research, pioneering equipment, and supporting our staff.
The Charity makes a real difference in our hospitals by enabling developments above and beyond what the NHS is able to provide. We support projects that push boundaries and transform clinical services in order to improve the experience of staff, patients and their loved ones, ensuring more positive outcomes for all.
Due to natural succession, trustee vacancies will arise over the next six months and we are seeking to find individuals who share our passion for improving healthcare for patients at this prestigious hospital group.
We are therefore seeking to recruit up to four new trustees with skills and experience in the following areas:
- Finance and/or investments
- Medical research
- Digital technology / communications
The Desired Applicants
The Board is seeking to ensure a diversity of perspectives on the Board that is truly representative of our local community and would be particularly keen to identify candidates from all walks of life, living or working locally to the Foundation Trust’s hospitals in Denmark Hill, Bromley and Orpington or those who have experience of care delivered by the Foundation Trust.
We particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups, people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, but also a broad age-range and people living with disabilities.
We do not require applicants to have previous experience of working as charity trustee. More than anything, we want to increase diversity and challenge and ensure our new trustees have a passion for our work.
