Chief Officer Integrated Joint Board/Joint Director Health and Social Care Partnership

Salary: circa £95,000


Midlothian Health and Social Care Partnership's vision is that people will lead longer and healthier lives by getting the right advice, care, and support, in the right place, at the right time. Our priority is to deliver care and support options that help people maximise the outcomes that are important to them and will make the biggest difference in their lives.


In anticipation of the current post holder’s retirement, Midlothian Integrated Joint Board are seeking a talented leader to advance the future model of care that puts the person first in a shared decision-making partnership with health and care professionals.


Midlothian has made exceptional progress in delivering seamless health and social care to an increasingly ageing population and a growing number of people who live with multiple and complex conditions. The increase in demand for services calls for a shift to care models that are sustainable, fair for all, and provide better outcomes. Through a combination of innovation, imaginative use of services and funding, and focussed collaboration between politicians, stakeholders, voluntary organisations, service users and the public these challenges are being addressed.


This is an exciting role for an exceptional individual with the vision to build on the existing foundation of innovation, partnership working and integrated service delivery. You will first and foremost be skilled at building and maintaining strategic relationships and in creating innovative solutions to complex issues.   You will have a demonstrable track record of delivering high standards of care to patients and service users.   An accomplished and credible leader, you will be able to inspire and motivate staff to work in new and collaborative ways to achieve transformational change in services.


The successful candidate will have significant leadership experience of transforming and improving services, a demonstrable track record of achieving joint goals, financial acumen and sound knowledge of the full scope of the health and social care environment.


If you have the experience and enthusiasm for this role we would welcome your application. To arrange an informal discussion about the post please contact Eibhlin McHugh, current postholder on 0131 271 3605
