Shadow Board Chair - Integrated Care Partnership

Health and social care partners in Central Lancashire have been working together with the aim of improving health and social care for the residents of Central Lancashire. They are now looking to appoint an exceptional leader to Chair the shadow  Board.

Health and social care partners in Central Lancashire have been working together with the aim of improving health and social care for the residents of Central Lancashire.

A programme of work known as “Our Health Our Care” was established in 2016 and under this programme of work partners have been coming together to transform services and improve health outcomes for our local population. Central Lancashire is part of the wider Lancashire and South Cumbria Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) and is working closely with all partners to achieve wider system level improvements to services. As we move forward it has become more apparent than in order to deliver some of our key priorities for change locally we need to work differently and place more emphasis on places, populations and systems rather than organisations.

Locally, partners have agreed that in order to accelerate the implementation of new care models which will be designed to integrate care and promote population health; we need to come together as a Shadow ICP Board in April 2018. Our aim is to take more control of funding and performance within our area and improve health outcomes for our population.

With that aim in mind partners have agreed to appoint a Chair of the shadow ICP Board who can provide leadership, overseeing and holding the local leadership to account in the implementation of the development of an Integrated Care Partnership in central Lancashire. The expectation is for the partnership to move to formal arrangements in April 2019. The Chair will be required to advise, inform and provide input on matters relating to proposed future arrangements for health and social care in central Lancashire.

This role will be key to the success of the central Lancashire vision for health and social care and applicants must be able to demonstrate excellent communication, interpersonal and facilitation skills. The Chair will be capable of securing the confidence of all parties during the lifetime of the shadow Board, using a collaborative and compassionate style of working that is focused on achieving evidence-based recommendations, new models of delivery and plans for service users, whilst holding partner’s to account for delivery against key programme milestones.
