Executive Recruitment

Welcome from Dr Julian Povey, Chair of NHS Shropshire CCG and NHS Telford and Wrekin CCG and Sir Neil McKay, Independent Chair of Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin STP/Shadow Integrated Care System

Dear Candidate

The Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Accountable Officer (AO) and STP/Shadow Integrated Care System (ICS) Executive Lead is a new and career-defining role providing critical leadership in developing and supporting a collaborative health and care system.   From April 2021 we will have one CCG across the system and this role combines leadership of that single commissioning organisation with the Executive leadership of the whole ICS which is currently operating in a Shadow form.  This is a broad and exciting leadership opportunity which has the support of all our partners.  Our system has some significant financial and performance challenges however through strong relationships, we are making real progress in working ‘together as one’ to seek opportunities to work differently to join services up, maximise the opportunities of innovation and digital technology and ensure our environments are fit for our staff to deliver world class modern day health and care services.

We are absolutely committed to developing a single commissioning organisation and to re-envisage this function as a wholly integrated strategic commissioner operating across our whole system and closely integrated with Local Authority Commissioning functions. We are seeking a leader for the CCG who has the vision to create the environment and relationships to deliver a strategic function that is focused on population health needs.  You will build on a strong base with stable and capable teams and high levels of engagement with our clinical leaders.

As Executive Lead for the Shadow ICS you will provide credible direction for the whole system working in partnership across statutory and non-statutory health and care providers, through open and compassionate relationships.  Whilst there is a strong commitment to the partnership solution, our system faces significant challenges with requirement for delivering transformational change to create improved services for our populations that are both high quality and sustainable. You will therefore need to navigate significant complexity to create a framework for integration which engages all stakeholders, has clear priorities, and gives assurance to our regulators.

We are seeking an inspirational and strategic board level leader with proven experience of delivering complex change across organisational boundaries.  Bringing an inclusive and engaging style, you will have a natural ability to communicate with patients, communities, clinicians, and wider staff groups whilst engaging diverse stakeholders and navigating complex political environments. 

This is an exceptional opportunity for you to provide true system leadership across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin whilst creating a single commissioning voice within the Shadow ICS, aligning our priorities to population health needs, tackling health inequalities, and delivering best value for money.  This role presents both a significant challenge and a hugely exciting opportunity for you to bring our system together as one to impact on the future health and wellbeing of our populations.

If you believe you can meet the challenges and capitalise on the opportunities to make a difference here in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, then we do encourage you to read more on this site and contact Emma Pickup or Richard Murphy on 07393 013 067 at GatenbySanderson for a confidential discussion about your interest.

We look forward to meeting you during the process.
