Named GP for Safeguarding Children - Islington

Job Reference: 985-NCLCCG-28

North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group
Safeguarding (212808) L6, London
£280 per session. A session is 3.5 hours

North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group (NCL CCG) was formally established in April 2020, bringing together five north London boroughs – Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.

NCL CCG is a clinically-led and member-driven CCG with the 203 GP practices across Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington making up our membership. Patients and residents are at the heart of our decision-making. To help shape our plans we listen to all the information shared with us from the people who use the services we commission and the many dedicated professionals who work to deliver them. We ensure the local patient, resident and clinical voice in the commissioning and delivery of health and care services, by working effectively together at all levels of our system.

North Central London’s population is incredibly diverse, and continues to grow and change. This brings pressure and challenges for the local health and care services that NCL CCG commissions – or buys – on behalf of residents. NCL CCG works closely with Councils, providers, general practices, voluntary, community organisations, and unions, to achieve our shared aims.

NCL CCG values our staff, our partners and their expertise to deliver the best health and care possible for the patients and residents of North Central London.
