Surrey Heartlands seeks Non-Executive Members to join new NHS Integrated Care Board

Surrey Heartlands Integrated Care System is on the search for five new Non Executive Members to join the new Integrated Care Board when it comes into being from April 2022, subject to legislation.

Surrey Heartlands has been a leading Integrated Care System since 2017, with strong ambitions and a successful track record in integration and improving health outcomes for local people.

Covering a population of over 1.1 million people, at its simplest level Surrey Heartlands is a partnership of health and care organisations working together – with staff, patients, their carers, families and members of the public – to transform local services and support people to live healthier lives.

As part of changes being proposed through the Health and Care Bill 2021, each health and care system will establish a new NHS body – the Integrated Care Board – which will hold a substantial budget for commissioning and ensuring delivery of high-quality patient care.  These new NHS bodies will take on many of the existing functions of current Clinical Commissioning Groups (which will be dissolved as part of the new legislation). 

We are looking for five Designate Non-Executive Members to join us on our journey, bringing independent oversight and constructive challenge to the priorities, plans and performance of the Integrated Commissioning Board, as well as the stewardship of public money.

Our independent Non-Executive Directors will play a crucial role in ensuring the voice, and needs, of local communities and patients are central to our discussions and decisions, where strategies and services are inclusive and accessible to our entire population, delivering the best possible health outcomes for all.

The five roles will cover the following positions:

  • Audit Committee Chair
  • Remuneration Committee Chair
  • Independent Member
  • General Members x 2 roles

We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all. We believe that the best boards are those that reflect the communities they serve and we especially welcome applications from candidates of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnicity heritage, as our leadership is under-represented in this area.

Remuneration for these roles will range from £13-16,000, depending on time and experience.

The closing date for applications is 12 December for the Audit Committee role and 10 January 2022 for all other roles.
