NHS Tayside


Chief Executive


Salary - Grade H - £130,043 - £173,278


As one of only four teaching Boards in Scotland, NHS Tayside has a strong track record of continually seeking ways to transform and improve the way we deliver health and care to the people of Tayside. We achieve this through our dedicated team of health and care professionals, who are passionate about the work they do and are committed to the people they serve.

In Tayside, we are focusing on clinician-led, whole-system redesign, working towards delivery of modern, world class services, directly addressing the needs of our communities. Our approach is rooted in providing high quality, safe, affordable and sustainable health and care, while exploring ways to improve outcomes, using realistic medicine principles, and by working closely with partners in a whole system approach to tackle the underlying determinants of health.


We have an ambitious agenda, so we are seeking a Chief Executive who shares our aims and values. An extraordinary individual, who will act with integrity, supporting the organisation in building and maintaining a culture where people are treated fairly, consistently and with respect; where everyone has a voice; and where equality, inclusion and diversity are valued.


This is a demanding role with a high level of public scrutiny and accountability. It requires a collaborative and resilient individual, with extensive and exceptional leadership skills, combined with relevant professional experience and a passion for quality and excellence to match that of our dedicated workforce.

If you are the right person for this role, you will be politically astute, with a commitment to delivering outstanding, innovative public services. You will also be committed to working collaboratively to reform the health and care system with our partners and have the personal qualities to inspire trust and confidence from a diverse group of internal and external stakeholders.

You will have a legacy of collaboration, with a credible track record of shaping and delivering transformational change across complex organisational boundaries, and will demonstrate a strong focus on sustainable approaches to improvement and whole system integrated working.
