The CEO has sought to lead the partnership of county health organizations with an annual salary of up to £ 197,500
The NHS has made an announcement for the leadership post of the Integrated Care System Board of Trustees in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, with an annual salary of up to £ 197,500.
The ICS, which brings together NHS services and local councils, replaced the County Sustainability and Transformation Partnership in April as part of the NHS long-term plan.
The job posting says the right candidate will have a “vision to bring a new approach to patient health care.”
He says: “As CEO of the ICS Integrated Care Board (ICB), you will work with your colleagues, your community and your partners to develop a long-term strategy to get there.
“There are now 42 ICSs covering the whole of England, each serving between 500,000 and three million people.
“Each ICB will have a substantial budget to implement high quality patient care and the power to make performance arrangements to ensure this is delivered.
“The final appointment as Director General of ICB would depend on the passage of the Health and Care Bill and, subject to any potential amendment to this Bill, would be formally made by the President of the ICB when it was created.
“These are important, high-level roles at the forefront of public sector reform.”
It indicates that the successful candidate will have significant experience within the board of directors and CEO; strong skills in strategic leadership, critical reasoning and calculation, with experience in managing large public funds.
The NHS says ICS are partnerships of health and care organizations that come together to plan and deliver joint services and to improve the health of people who live and work in their area.
They exist to fight inequalities, improve productivity and value for money, and support broader social and economic development in their region.
The Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin ICS includes the Local Clinical Commissioning Group, the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, the Robert Jones Agnes Hunt Orthopedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, the Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust, primary care / general practitioners, Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council, as well as the voluntary sector.
Speaking earlier this year at the county ICS formation, Mark Brandreth, ICS Executive Director, said: “We have made great strides in developing our relationships and working together over the past few years. .
“In addition to our collective response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have excellent local examples such as the multidisciplinary nursing home team at Telford and Wrekin, which includes nursing home staff working closely with primary care colleagues to provide enhanced support, using digital technologies to enable remote consultations.
“In Shropshire, public health, the voluntary sector and primary care have worked collaboratively on a social prescribing model that supports people in the community in which they live. We want to continue to integrate and accelerate this joint work through our SCI development plan. “
Candidates have been invited to apply for the post before it closes on Sunday, with interviews scheduled to take place in October.
