Vacancy Description

NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is recruiting a Lay Member to join its Governing Body.

NHS Leeds CCG is ambitious and committed to focussing real change in tackling health inequalities, which was highlighted even more by Covid-19. The response to Covid-19 has also seen a lot of innovation in a short space of time and the CCG would like the lay member to be able to offer support around the digital and information agendas, whilst also bringing challenge and assurance around programmes and investments.

  • Previous experience of organisational change
  • A track record of facilitating business transformation, involving information management & technology
  • Understanding of business / enterprise architecture, including value streams and business capability modelling

In addition, the CCG is keen to appoint a candidate with a passion for the following areas:

  • Tackling health inequalities
  • Championing diversity – including talent management, especially for BAME colleagues
  • Partnership development – around assurance, risk and shared investment -both within Leeds and the wider Integrated Care System (West Yorkshire and Harrogate)
  • Securing the digital and analytical infrastructure to underpin Population Health Management

Applicants will also be able to demonstrate a special interest in Leeds, for example, living or working in the area or by being closely involved in projects and other activities in the city. Some time commitment may be required in the evenings and there will be some travel within the CCG boundary and occasionally further afield.
