Governing Body Lay Members (3 roles), NCL CCG

Job Reference: 985-ICCG-550

Employer:
Islington Clinical Commissioning Group
Department:
NCL CCG Governing Body
Location:
London
Salary:
£230 per session, for 46 weeks per year

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.

Please note that all vacancies will be subject to a 6 month’s probation period in line with the CCG Probation Policy.


Governing Body Lay Members (3 roles) – NCL CCG

The five Clinical Commissioning Groups in North Central London (NCL CCGs) – Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington – are merging to form one CCG from April 2020.

In moving to a single NCL CCG, we will provide a single, strong and consistent vision and voice for our partners, and work cohesively as ‘one NHS’, delivering improved patient outcomes and reducing health inequalities.

A new Governing Body will be in place to lead the new CCG – consisting of elected and appointed Board Members.

We are now looking for individuals to undertake the following three Governing Body Lay Member roles in the NCL CCG from 01 April 2020:

  • Lay Member – Financial Management, Audit & Governance portfolio
  • Lay Member – Patient & Public Engagement and Involvement portfolio
  • Lay Member – General Portfolio, including Equality, Diversity & Inclusion and the annual QIPP programme

We are seeking candidates who are passionate about the NHS and have relevant experience of operating in a leadership role in large and complex organisations.

Candidates should have an understanding of outcomes-based commissioning and have the interpersonal skills and political astuteness to build highly effective partnerships.

Crucially, we are looking for individuals who are motivated to be a key part of ensuring a successful new CCG for North Central London, which maximises the opportunities this will bring to delivering improved health outcomes to patients across North Central London.

Information on each of the Lay Member positions, including the role requirements and time commitment, is set out in the attached candidate pack.

If you would like to apply for more than one Lay Member role, you will only be required to complete and submit one application form.

Please clearly specify which Lay Member role(s) you would like to be considered for in the supporting statement.

It is envisaged that interviews will take place in mid-February.
