Applications invited for ULHG Board

25 Apr 2014

By Lloyd Mudiwa. The Minister for Health, Dr James Reilly, invites expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced persons for two vacancies on the administrative board of the University of Limerick Hospitals Group (ULHG), which he has described as an exceptional opportunity for individuals to contribute their expertise to a significant part of the health reform agenda and make a positive difference to patients and their families.

Applicants for these two positions should have specific expertise in either legal compliance and due diligence, and corporate risk, or both.

The development of hospital groups is part of the Programme for Government 2011-2016 and is one of the most significant changes in Irish healthcare in many years.

The establishment of ULHG will provide the governance and organisational structure needed for change, with more autonomy, better enabling the reorganisation of acute hospital services in the region in a well-planned manner, to deliver uniformly high standards of clinical care for patients.

Appointments to the Group Board will be for a four-year term (or until the granting of trust status, if earlier) but some flexibility may be required to allow overlap between administrative hospital group boards and statutory hospital trust boards.

There is no remuneration for acting as a member of the Board. Travel and subsistence allowances, however, will be paid in line with Government guidelines.

In line with principles of good governance, individuals with conflicts of interest, including employees of the HSE, will not be appointed to the board.

Applications will be accepted up to and including Tuesday April 15.

The Group includes University Hospital Limerick, UL Hospitals Ennis Hospital, UL Hospitals Nenagh Hospital, UL Hospitals St John’s Hospital, UL Hospitals Croom, and University Maternity Hospital.
