5 Non-Executive Directors - NHS Lincolnshire CCG

There are vacancies for five Non-executive Directors of NHS Lincolnshire CCG. This is an exceptional opportunity to share your talents and expertise to make a positive difference to the lives of people in your community.

In Lincolnshire our four NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs - East, South, South-West and West) have been working increasingly closer together; joining up our approach to purchasing healthcare services for the nearly 800,000 people who live within the county. Since April this year we have had a single Chief Officer leading the four organisations and in October our Regulator, NHS England/Improvement, agreed in principle to a formal merger of the four CCGs to create a new organisation, NHS Lincolnshire CCG, from April 2020. NHS Lincolnshire CCG will have an annual revenue budget of approximately £1.3bn and employ over 200 staff.

We are ambitious for the future of the health and care system in Lincolnshire and for the health of the population we serve. While there are undoubtedly significant challenges to address, we have an exciting agenda to transform care across the county and the creation of NHS Lincolnshire CCG provides an opportunity to accelerate progress.

The fourth largest county in England, Lincolnshire is a predominantly rural health economy, covering almost 6,000 square kilometres. While the county as a whole has a deprivation score (measured by the Indices of Multiple Deprivation) that is close to the England average, there are three local authority areas where the deprivation score is considerably higher than both the county and national average: Lincoln to the west and East Lindsey and Boston to the east.

As a county-wide organisation, we aim to take a system leadership role in Lincolnshire and to work effectively with partners across the system to deliver our ambitious collective vision of improving the health and wellbeing of the population we serve, reducing health inequalities and improving quality of care.

To help us on the next stage of this journey we are now looking to appoint five Non-executive Directors to join our board. These Non-Executives will have significant board-level experience and a track record of working well in teams to deliver continuous improvement. Strong communication and strategic skills are essential, as is the capacity to provide constructive challenge and support to board colleagues.

We are keen to consider people from the broadest possible backgrounds with a particular interest in those with experience in finance, integration, HR& OD, partnership working and digital/technology, alongside governance and public/patient involvement.
