British Society for Haematology – Lay Trustees

Jan 15, 2020


We are delighted to be supporting the British Society for Haematology (BSH) with their Trustees recruitment.

BSH is a charity and membership body for professionals working in the field of blood disorders, founded in 1960. Its charitable objectives are to advance the practice and study of haematology and to facilitate contact between persons interested in haematology.

The Society has over 2,000 members, the vast majority of whom are consultant and trainee haematologists in the UK. In 2019 BSH introduced a free Associate membership aimed at nurses, medical students, allied health professionals, and doctors and scientists at the start of their career.

The Society recruited two lay trustees for the first time in April 2016. They brought new skills and energy to the Trustee Board and in April 2019, both were invited and agreed to serve a second three-year term. The Society’s Articles permit it to have four lay trustees on the Trustee Board at any one time. In order to ensure a smooth handover when the current lay trustees leave in 2022 and a good skills mix on the Trustee Board, the Society is now looking to recruit two more lay trustees who will serve an initial three-year term from April 2020.

BSH is seeking candidates with expertise in one or more areas of:

  • governance and strategy;
  • communications and public affairs;
  • general finance management and business development;
  • experience of working with the UK healthcare system.

Prior experience of membership bodies would also be desirable.
