The NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk, West Suffolk and North East Essex CCGs plan and buy healthcare services for over one million people. Working within a total budget of £1.5bn per year, we serve some of the poorest and wealthiest communities in the UK.

This is an exciting time to join us. Our three CCGs - each rated 'outstanding' by NHS England - are joining forces.

In addition to consolidating our own resources and expertise, we are also building powerful alliances with our partners in the local government, healthcare, community and voluntary sectors. Because we know that together, we can achieve the best possible health outcomes

We are committed to providing a supportive work environment where employees are able to work to the best their abilities. We value professional development and care about health and wellbeing of our staff with many initiatives in place to make us an employer of choice and an organisation that employees are proud to be part of.

As a member of a small team you will be involved in all aspects of primary care engagement and partnership working. You will also support wider communications to ensure the CCG engages effectively with its GP Patient Participation Groups and the voluntary sector organisations. Based at Endeavour House, you will be required to travel across Ipswich and East Suffolk.
