  • Job Level: Board

    With integration and collaboration at the heart of health and care services across south-east London, partnership structures are changing to support an increasing emphasis on greater collaboration to support a system-wide approach. It is essential that patients and the public are at the heart of decision making and ensuring services meet the needs and aspirations of our communities.

    You will represent Healthwatch (HW) as the independent consumer champion for health and social care on the south-east London (SEL) Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) governing body (and related sub-committees).
    You will bring patient and public perspective, informed by your liaison and engagement with the six Local Healthwatch (LHW) across south-east London.

    It is not intended that this role will have oversight of Healthwatch engagement or patient and public engagement, rather that you will help to hold the CCG to account, through the appropriate governance processes, and facilitate use of LHW intelligence to ensure the CCG discharges its engagement functions effectively.

    As a member of the SEL CCG governing body (and related sub-committees) you will share responsibility for ensuring that it exercises its functions effectively, efficiently, economically, with good governance and in accordance with the terms of the SEL CCG and NHS constitution.
