Do you have the vision to shape the future of health and care for people in BSW?

The BSW Integrated Care Board (BSW ICB) is looking to recruit a number of Non-Executive Directors to help us on our journey to become a thriving Integrated Care System (ICS).

We are looking to recruit five Non-Executive Directors to work with us in areas including finance, audit, community and public engagement, quality and renumeration and people.

As an independent non-executive member of the BSW ICB, you will help to shape a long-term, viable plan for local health and care services.

You will also have a key role in ensuring that the voice and needs of patients and communities are central to ICB discussions and decisions, so that our plans are made in an open, inclusive and accessible way and deliver the best possible health outcomes for all.

We are interested in your life experience and personal motivations that will add valuable personal insights such as: being a patient, carer or service user; experience of gender and women’s issues; engaging with diverse social, economic and cultural groups and communities; experiences and challenges of younger people; and those with lived experience of mental health issues and/or living with physical chronic conditions or disability.

Stephanie Elsy, Chair Designate of the BSW ICB said the roles offered an opportunity for the right people to use their knowledge, experience and skills to make sure that the BSW ICB does the best it can for local people and communities.

“BSW ICB needs diverse, inclusive and compassionate leaders who not only reflect the community we serve and the staff we employ, but have the leadership style and breadth of perspective to make good collective decisions.

We have a strong record of delivery and improvement, and we are proud of what we have achieved together including being awarded Integrated Care System (ICS) status in December 2020.

The team here at BSW are making good progress in developing our partnership and I look forward to the extra insight and vision that our new Non-Executive Directors will bring to our organisation.”
