Applications open for independent non-executive members of the proposed NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care BoardDate posted: 6th November 2021
The NHS in Lancashire and South Cumbria is looking to appoint two independent non-executive members to the NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board, a new NHS organisation which is proposed to be established from April 2022 as part of national legislation and the developments of the Lancashire and South Cumbria Health and Care Partnership.
The individuals will provide a creative and innovative contribution to the board by providing independent oversight and constructive challenge and as such, the partnership is really interested in receiving applications from people with different backgrounds, skills and experience.
The NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board is proposed to form part of the Lancashire and South Cumbria Health and Care Partnership in the future, which brings together health and care organisations, local government and the voluntary and community sector. The development of integrated care builds on partnership working over a number of years and aims to improve population health, tackle health inequalities and help the NHS support broader social and economic development.
As part of the new legislation, the NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board will take on the CCGs’ functions and broader strategic responsibility for overseeing healthcare strategies for the system.
David Flory, Independent Chair for Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System, said: “These are exciting roles which will have an important role in shaping improvements in health and care across Lancashire and South Cumbria in the future subject to the proposals to national legislation.”
“Lancashire and South Cumbria covers a wide and diverse geography and therefore it is important that we look to increase the diversity of NHS board teams to reflect the 1.8million people who live in our area. This gives a real opportunity to reach out to people who are typically under-represented in decision making around health such as local Black Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, LGBT communities, younger people and those with lived experience of disability. We want a change and welcome applications from people from all backgrounds with a range of skills and experience.”
The NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board is seeking to appoint non-executive members, with the added remit for these as Chair of the Audit Committee and Chair of the Remuneration Committee. We are looking for candidates who will work with the Designate Chair, and, subject to legislation, support the establishment of the system’s new statutory arrangements.
