Chair Recruitment


Introduction from Jenny Belza, Non-Executive Director

Introduction from Jabar Mohammed, Service Delivery Manager and Deputy Lead Governor

Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust delivers community-based healthcare services to the 1.1 million residents of Birmingham and specialist services to 5.5 million people within the wider West Midlands region.

We are one of the largest dedicated providers of NHS community services in the country, with an annual turnover of £328 million. We employ more than 4,500 whole time equivalent staff to deliver the wide range of services we provide, and we operate from over 300 sites across Birmingham and the West Midlands.

We care for people throughout their lives from the new-born and their families to the frail elderly and their carers. Our services are diverse; from health lifestyle services that keep people feeling well to the most complex healthcare for those with highly specialist needs. We provide care in people’s homes and also in clinics and inpatient units across the city. We deliver all of this with a commitment to integrated, personalized care that is rooted in our local communities.

Birmingham is a young and thriving city preparing to host the Commonwealth Games in 2022. We serve some of the most deprived communities in the country, as well as some of the most ethnically diverse. The COVID19 pandemic hit hardest those who were already at the greatest disadvantage, reminding us of the importance of tackling inequality and its impact on health and life chances. We know we can only respond fully to the needs of those we serve if we are a truly inclusive organisation for our colleagues.

We are currently seeking a collaborative and strategic Chair to lead, support and challenge our Board and our Council of Governors in delivering our vision; Best Care: Healthy Communities, ensuring we provide outstanding care to those whom we serve. This an exceptional and rewarding opportunity to use your energy, skills and experience to make a lasting difference to the health and well being of people served by our Trust now and in the future.
