Vacancy Description

Outstanding opportunities to shape the future of health and care services for 2.4 million people

Remunerated for circa 3 days per month

In West Yorkshire, we are proud of what we have achieved as a health and care partnership over five years of system working and are now looking to appoint a collaborative, insightful, and values-based Independent Non-Executive Member as we transition into a statutory integrated care system from 1 July 2022.

As the winner of the Health Service Journal National Award for Integrated Care System of the Year, our partnership supports 2.4 million people, living in urban and rural areas. 770,000 are children and young people. 530,000 people live in areas ranked in the most deprived 10% of England. 20% of people are from minority ethnic communities. There are an estimated 400,000 unpaid carers, as many don’t access support. Together we employ over 100,000 staff who work alongside thousands of volunteers.

Person Specification

As we enter the next period of development for our health and care system, we are seeking people with the humility, skills and professionalism required to lead in West Yorkshire. This means being able to demonstrate that you can make an impact on people’s health outcomes and address some of the most significant inequalities and unwarranted variations in care in England.

As an Independent Non-Executive Member for the NHS West Yorkshire Integrated Care Board, you will help set the tone in our ambitious, successful, award-winning system. You will help shape a new team that leads in a very different way from any predecessor organisation – in a system built on a partnership between the NHS, local government, hospices, Healthwatch, the voluntary community social enterprise sector (VCSE), business and communities. We have a model of diverse and distributed leadership that embraces all the talents in the partnership. Together we are proud to be the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership.

Your values and behaviours will be fundamental, and you will be a respected, compassionate, and inclusive leader with the ability to build and sustain successful partnerships. We would be pleased to receive applications from people from a variety of backgrounds and sectors who have in common a commitment to tackling health inequalities and achieving equality, diversity, and inclusion for and with the population and health and care workers of West Yorkshire. We are very committed to increasing the diversity of our leadership so that it is representative of the population we serve in West Yorkshire and particularly welcome applications from people from an ethnic minority background.

If you share our values and ambitions for the people living in West Yorkshire and have the skills and experience to drive our integrated care system forward, then we would be delighted to receive your application.
