Salary: NHS Band 8C £63,751-£73,664 + benefits
Location: Southampton

Southampton Hospitals Charity strives to enhance the world class facilities provided at Southampton General and Princess Anne hospitals by University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS).

UHS is a large teaching hospital located on the south coast of England. Our clinical care encompasses local acute and elective care for people who live in Southampton and surrounding areas. As a major teaching hospital, UHS also provides the full range of tertiary medical and surgical specialities to over 3.7 million people living in Southern England and the Channel Islands. Providing these services costs £1.16 million per day. The charity works with its supporters to raise money and provide financial support to areas of the hospital service that lie beyond the scope of NHS funding.

Our Trust mission is: together we care, innovate and inspire. This is supported by our values of ‘Patients First, Working Together, Always Improving’.
