Local information

Our Integrated Care System (ICS) footprint covers 1,347 square miles but is one of the smallest in terms of population, covering around 500,000 people. We have one Clinical Commissioning Group covering the area of Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and two Local Authorities. We have two acute hospitals, sited less than 20 miles apart, with services delivered by one acute trust, The Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust (SaTH).

There is also a specialist orthopaedic hospital, Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH), which provides elective orthopaedic surgery, sited in the north west of the county.

Additional providers include a community trust (Shropcom), a mental health trust - Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (MPFT) which covers Shropshire and Staffordshire, and the region is served by the West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust (WMAS).

Our ICS area is one of a handful that borders Wales and provides some hospital services for people from the Welsh health system who are external to the ICS footprint. Some residents of mid-Wales therefore rely on the services at SaTH and RJAH.

The Opportunity

As an independent non-executive member for an NHS ICB, you will help to shape a long-term, viable plan for the delivery of the functions, duties, and objectives of the ICB, and for the stewardship of public money.

You will bring independent oversight and constructive challenge to the priorities, plans and performance of the ICB executive team, and promote open and transparent decision-making that facilitates consensus.

You will need to operate beyond traditional organisational boundaries, driving forward the vision of integration, collaboration and system-working, by forging productive relationships across local health, social care and voluntary partners.

You will have a key role in ensuring that the voice and needs of patients and communities are central to ICB discussions and decisions, so that strategies and services are inclusive and accessible to the whole population, and deliver the best possible health outcomes for all.

We are recruiting:

  • Chair of the Audit Committee
  • Chair of the Remuneration Committee (also to be a champion for health inequalities)
  • Chair of the Digital Committee
