Recruitment for four Governing Body positions is now underway at Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).
As part of the move to create a single CCG, the county’s commissioners are currently looking to fill jointly appointed roles on both CCGs’ Governing Bodies.
With the two organisations bringing their decision-making processes closer together, Governing Body members will play an important role in the new CCG helping to shape and develop local health services across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
Each role is expected to be in the region of 2 to 2.5 days per month, for a four year period, and will begin in August 2020.
David Evans, joint accountable officer for Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin CCGs, said: “We are keen to hear from enthusiastic and talented individuals who can bring to the CCGs a passion to improve services.
“We are looking for people who can draw upon relevant experience to actively challenge and bring objectivity to the decisions of the CCGs and ensure that those decisions put the needs of patients first.”
While Alison Smith, director of corporate affairs for Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin CCGs, said: “There has never been a more exciting time to help shape how the NHS in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin will work in the future.
“Governing Body members are key appointments for CCGs and individuals in these high profile positions will have the opportunity to demonstrate their leadership skills and make a positive difference.”
