AECC University College is a specialist health sciences institution and registered charity, established in 1965, dedicated to providing excellent education, clinical care and applied research.

About the role

Reporting directly to the Chief Operating Officer, the Director of Clinical and Rehabilitation Services will be responsible for the leadership, management and transformation of clinical services at the University College.

The role requires working in partnership with the Executive Group, senior management colleagues, governors, staff, students, patients and service users to ensure a culture of openness, shared responsibility and collaboration. There will also be significant external engagement with partners to embed our services within the wider Integrated Care System across Dorset and to work with non-NHS customers to seek out and optimise opportunities for AECC University College.
