The purpose of NCEPOD is to improve standards of healthcare for the benefit of the public by undertaking confidential reviews into patient care. Since 1988 the organisation has published over 50 reports which have resulted in significant, positive changes across all aspects of healthcare.

As a registered charity and company limited by guarantee NCEPOD has a board of Trustees to oversee the governance of the organisation.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint new Trustees.

Applications are invited from all interested persons, however, applications would be particularly welcome from those with experience in one or more of the following:

  • Fundraising
  • Finance management
  • Quality Improvement (QI)
  • Healthcare education
  • Primary care
  • Community care
The appointed Trustees will work with the existing Board to advise the Chief Executive on ways to develop the organisation whilst maximising the financial income to the charity.

The role of the Trustee and further details about NCEPOD are available on our website.
