Trustee Vacancy Announced By Thames Valley Air Ambulance

Thames Valley Air Ambulance (TVAA), which provides emergency medical care for people who live, work and travel in Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, is looking to appoint a new Trustee to work with the current board and be responsible for the oversight of clinical governance arrangements.

The perfect candidate would be a registered clinician, particularly a Paramedic or Doctor, with a background in the provision of emergency services, medicine and prehospital care. TVAA is open to an applicant looking to expand their Trustee work along with those seeking their first appointment.

The charity’s vision is to push the boundaries of medical intervention, helicopter aviation and on-scene patient care to deliver a unique life-saving service where, and when, it is most needed.  

It was the first Air Ambulance Service to operate at night while introducing new equipment and techniques, including the carriage of blood, plasma and ultrasound. Now, the team are working with neighbouring charity Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance (HIOWAA) to provide coverage across the region every night until 2 am.

Trustee appointments are normally for 6 years. Trustees are unpaid, but reasonable out of pocket expenses can be reimbursed. Alongside Committee meetings, the successful candidate will also occasionally be part of Clinical Governance Groups. The board are very collaborative.

As a result, the successful candidate will want to be part of a highly committed and creative team, wholly dedicated to the communities they serve.  

If you are interested in the role, please contact retained consultant Simon Bell on simon@grayssearchandselection.com or call 07766 714 951 for an initial discussion.

 Closing date for applications will be Friday 5th of October 2018.
