In 2017, CSH Surrey became the county's largest out of hospital provider, delivering safe, high quality health services to more than one million adults, children, young people and their families. CSH Surrey works with primary care and other partners to deliver tangible health outcomes through a forward-thinking, skilled and committed workforce. In April 2017, CSH Surrey mobilised two new contracts to run North West Surrey adults’ and the Surrey-wide children’s contract, on-boarding over 900 new staff. CSH Surrey now employs more than 1,400 nurses, therapists and support staff, all of whom are partners in CSH Surrey’s success as an employee-owned social enterprise. This substantial growth in service delivery and staff numbers reflects the significant opportunities ahead, as well as challenges facing the organisation.

The Director of Nursing and Quality will be joining a highly experienced and new team set on ensuring that CSH Surrey operates as an exceptional provider, instilling a culture of pride and excitement while building success.
