Job Description

Doctors of the World UK (DOTW UK) is part of the global Médecins du Monde (MDM) network, which delivers over 400 projects in more than 70 countries through 6,000 volunteers. 

Our vision is of a world in which vulnerable people affected by war, natural disasters, disease, hunger, poverty, or exclusion get the healthcare they need. 

Through our health programmes and advocacy, we work to ensure excluded people overcome barriers to realising their right to healthcare. Since opening in the UK in 1998, we’ve raised £10m for overseas programmes, helped 20,000 service users here and fought for healthcare as a human right for all. 

We believe that every person living in the UK has the right to healthcare, and we work to influence public policy and local implementation to reduce health inequalities and ensure access to healthcare for all.

DOTWUK is proud to have a diverse board of trustees with a broad range of skills, including expertise in law, communications, accountancy, migrant lived experience, and more. We are currently seeking a Clinical Trustee to enhance our team's capabilities.

For this dynamic position, we are in search of a candidate with expertise in clinical governance to aid our quarterly clinical governance, quality, and safety board sub-committee meetings. Clinical Trustees contribute a plethora of skills, experience, and expertise to the Board of Trustees, assisting in the Charity's development to fulfil its mission and uphold its principles. The selected individual will utilise their understanding and proficiency in practice delivery and clinical governance to improve the board's oversight function in this area.
