The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust is continuing to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing restoration of services work. A critical aspect of the Trust’s response to the ongoing effects of COVID-19 is the functioning of the Incident Command Centre; supporting any future waves, and the resilience of core services throughout the winter period. The Trust is seeking to fill a 6-month secondment role to support the management of the Incident Command Centre (ICC). The role would suit candidates with NHS operational experience who believe that their enthusiasm, willingness to learn and commitment to hard work would make a difference in what will be a challenging winter for the Trust.
