Governing Body Nurse

Job Ref: 266-13-008-KP

Hours: p/t two days per month

Fixed term three-year appointment

Help our CCG to realise a vision, engage patients and communities and find ways to improve.

The NHS Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group is offering an exciting opportunity for a nurse to be part of the Governing Body of a commissioning organisation in a unique setting.

The Isle of Wight is a single health system made up of 17 practices, an integrated NHS provider and unitary authority.  The CCG is enthusiastically embracing the opportunities to develop integrated care in this setting.  We have a history of excellent clinical engagement and well developed local relationships as well as a reputation for successful innovation.

We are looking for someone who is able to support and challenge us in our journey to reform the delivery of health and social care on the Island and bring an understanding of patient care to the CCG Governing Body.

The individual may be retired but will need to demonstrate a current understanding of nursing. This role requires a commitment of up to two days per month. There is a requirement to travel to meetings and expenses will be reimbursed. Please note, an employee of any organisation with whom the CCG has a contract, or an employee of a provider of primary medical services cannot undertake this role.

For an informal discussion about this opportunity please contact Helen Shields, Chief Officer on 01983 552430.

Closing date: 21 January 2014

Interviews will be held on 30 January 2014.
