There are four Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) that commission healthcare services for the Greater Nottingham population; NHS Nottingham City, NHS Nottingham North and East, NHS Nottingham West and NHS Rushcliffe CCGs.

If you’ve gained senior or Board level experience in the private, public or voluntary sectors, we would be delighted to hear from you. You will need to demonstrate a range of leadership attributes and competencies, as set out within the role specification.

The appointment will be for a period of up to three years, with a time commitment of two and a half days per month, as a minimum. This may include some evening engagements. Remuneration will be negotiable depending on personal circumstances.
