THE hospital trust in charge of the John Radcliffe is appealing for two new non-executive directors from diverse backgrounds 'to reflect the diversity of the populations which we serve in Oxfordshire'.

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) has said it is looking for people with experience in system working, the care and charitable sectors, transport and sustainability, or as a clinician with a non-medical background.

Professor Sir Jonathan Montgomery, Chair of OUH, says: “I am really keen with these appointments that we can connect ourselves with a broader range of the people whom we serve, so it would be great if we can find people from less traditional backgrounds.

“We are looking for people who really care about improving the quality of the NHS and, if that’s you, I’d love you to apply for these posts."

The closing date for applications is Wednesday.
