Director, Pathology Services and Strategy
- Lead service excellence and innovation
- High level strategic leadership for ACT Pathology
- Support the delivery of high quality, effective, person-centred care
The Director of Pathology Services and Strategy is a new role that has arisen from a recent restructure to support stronger leadership and clinical governance. Reporting to the Executive Director of Pathology, and in partnership with the Pathology executive team, the role will provide high level strategic leadership for ACT Pathology.
This is a critical role which will take the lead on strategy development for ACT Pathology, aligning with the values of Canberra Health Services (CHS), and will drive business development, stakeholder engagement and our brand. The Director of Pathology Services and Strategy works with clinicians, consumers, government, peak bodies, and other stakeholders to ensure that ACT Pathology provides high quality, value-added services while building a reputation for excellence and innovation in a dynamic and rapidly changing health environment. The role will ensure that ACT Pathology meets health consumer expectations and has growing recognition for our contribution to the ACT community and beyond.
We seek an inspirational leader with a talent for business strategy, maturity, and a passion for leading change. In addition, you will lead teams with customer facing functions, including collection staff, patient accounts and clinical trials. The Director will have responsibility for budget management, learning and development, recruitment, procurement, safety and quality and people development for these teams.
The incoming Director is a values-based individual who will be a good fit for CHS, working collaboratively with the leadership team, laboratory managers, pathologists, and other stakeholders to build workplace culture and help ensure that work enriches our peoples’ lives.
A background in Pathology is not essential, as experience gained in other health services will be well regarded.
This is an incredible opportunity in a role that will be pivotal to the success of the service in the region.
A tertiary qualification (or equivalent) in Health or related discipline is desirable.
CHS is focussed on the delivery of high quality, effective, person-centred care. It provides acute, sub-acute, primary, and community‐based health services, to the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) and surrounding region.
ACT Pathology is a division of the CHS with laboratories located at both the Canberra Hospital and Calvary Hospital operating 24 hours, seven days a week all year round. Pathology provides diagnostic and consultative services to medical specialists and general practitioners and their patients in hospital and in the community.
This is an exciting time for CHS and the pathology team with some large milestones ahead including the construction and opening of the new critical services building and the implementation of a territory wide digital health record.
