System Board

Our System Board

System Board is our strategic leadership group across the Surrey Heartlands system, and includes health and care leaders from across our partnership such as our hospital chief executives and council leads for social care.  It’s where we have the opportunity to discuss key topics and agree strategies, providing system stewardship to balance our available resources and collective responsibilities.  The Board oversees the definition and delivery of the Surrey Heartlands strategy, within the context of the overall Surrey 10 year Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

The Board meets monthly, and holds meetings in public every quarter.  More information on how to join our public meetings can be found here.  

Overall responsibilities of the Board include:

  • Overseeing the ambitions set out in the Surrey Heartlands Health and Care Partnership Agreement
  • Shaping and getting consensus for the strategic direction of the ICS (partnership), making recommendations to the respective decision-making bodies as appropriate
  • Ensuring partners work collaboratively to ensure system, vision and strategy alignment; using the Surrey 10 year Health and Wellbeing Strategy to shape and get consensus on health and care strategy
  • Ensuring this consensus is built around the needs of local populations which in turn drives a genuine and sustainable transformation in citizen experience and outcomes
  • Overseeing the delivery of the system plan and use of system resources (investment framework) to meet our ambitions
  • Overseeing the development of the ICS and integration across health and care in line with both the system plan and NHS Long Term Plan
  • Acting as a forum for discussion and resolution of important or contentious issues relating to the health and care system, the overall system plan and constituent work streams
  • Acting as a key point of escalation from all subgroups to System Board, in particular the Surrey Heartlands Oversight and Assurance Group (SOAG), our Recovery Board, and any other Boards requiring partnership action to resolve and operate at scale
  • Promoting and supporting engagement across the Surrey Heartlands area, ensuring that the views of all relevant stakeholders, including users of our services, the voluntary community and faith sector and the public are embedded in our decisions and citizen co-design is at the heart of what we do
  • Ensuring partners are operating to the values, behaviours and principles of our partnership MOU  and able to challenge each other if these are not being lived up to.
