Independent Non Executive Member - Clinical Quality - NENC

We are looking for a clinically-qualified Non-Executive Director (NED) to join NHS North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care Board (the ICB).

As an independent non-executive member, you will help us to shape our long-term plan and be accountable as a member of the unitary board for the good stewardship of the funds allocated to the board. You will bring independent oversight and constructive challenge, promoting open and transparent decision-making.

You will need to operate beyond traditional organisational boundaries: driving forward the vision of integration, collaboration, and system- working, by forging productive relationships across local health, social care and voluntary partners.

You will also have a key role in ensuring that the voices and needs of our patients and communities are central to ICB discussions and decisions, so that strategies and services are inclusive and accessible to the whole population and deliver the best possible health outcomes for all.

This is a unique opportunity to help shape the future of local services contributing to the shared responsibility for improving the health of the ICB’s population by sharing your clinical talents and expertise to help transform our commissioned services and deepening the collaborative working essential to making a positive difference to all our communities across the North East and North Cumbria footprint.

There is emphatic evidence that diverse boards make the best decisions. We want to increase the diversity of NHS board teams. In non-executive roles nationally, it is known that women, people from the local Black Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, LGBT communities, younger people and those with lived experience of disability are all under-represented.

We are really interested in receiving applications from people with different backgrounds, skills and experience.
