Lay Member, Northamptonshire CCG

NHS Northamptonshire CCG commissions services on behalf of our c.781,000 population living across Daventry, Northampton, Wellingborough, Kettering, Corby, East Northamptonshire and South Northamptonshire.

Northamptonshire is one of the fastest growing areas in the United Kingdom. Its population is getting older, increasingly diverse and more people are benefitting from longer life expectancy. However, there are still significant differences in health and life expectancy across the county. In the last 30 years, the population of Northamptonshire has increased by just over 30% compared to an 18% England average.

Over the past year, and like many others across the world, we have faced one of the largest threats in over a century in the form of the Covid-19 pandemic. In Northamptonshire, we have established the Strategic Coordination Centre to manage and coordinate our local response to the pandemic. We are extremely proud of the way Northamptonshire has come together to tackle this crisis and how our teams and people have worked tirelessly as part of this response to try and protect and care for as many people as possible.

The progress we’ve made this past year has been delivered in a climate of change and continuous financial and external pressure. As a result we have not achieved some of our key constitutional standards and targets were temporarily suspended to enable our continued work to fight Covid-19. We have been working closely with our providers to ensure our local population is able to access the best possible health services available and you can view our latest annual report and accounts to check out how we’re doing on our website here.

The next stage of our journey is key for how we as an organisation and a system move forward. To help us on this, we are looking for a new Lay Member to join our Governing Body and Chair our Audit and Risk Committee.
