Our Trust

Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundation Trust comprises Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Rosie Hospital in Cambridge. With over 9000 staff and over 1100 beds the priorities of the Trust focus on a quality service which is all about people – patients, staff and partners. Recognised as providing ‘outstanding’ care to our patients and rated ‘Good’ overall by the Care Quality Commissioner, is testament to the skill and dedication of the people who work here. CUH’s values – Together- safe, kind, excellent – are at the heart of patient care, defining the way all staff work and behave. The Trust provides accessible high-quality healthcare for the local people of Cambridge, together with specialist services, dealing with rare or complex conditions for a regional, national and international population.

Are you passionate about the impact that art can have on health and wellbeing and able to persuade others of its importance?

We're seeking an inspirational leader for one of the best-developed arts programmes in the NHS. This is an outstanding opportunity to make a difference to nearly a million patients, staff and visitors to Addenbrooke's and the Rosie hospitals in Cambridge.

You will be responsible for seeking out opportunities for the arts to make a positive impact in health. This will involve liaising with partners on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and further afield to deliver projects with the highest impact that set new standards for involving arts in healthcare. A key element of the role is to embrace the artistic contribution and involvement of our community using the extensive arts networks in Cambridge and the surrounding area.

If you are a compelling advocate for the contribution that the arts can make in therapeutic settings and are highly experienced in the arts and/or health sector with a proven ability to collaborate with a diverse range of partners then we'd like to hear from you.

Interviews are due to take place on 9th October 2018
