Thank you for your interest in this exceptional opportunity to become an Executive Director on the Unitary Board of the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (SYB ICS) and designate Executive Director of the South Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (SYICB). Further to the publication of the Government’s White Paper (Integration and Innovation) on 11th February 2021, and subject to the final Parliamentary Bill, integrated care systems (ICS) are expected to become statutory organisations later this year.
Since 2016, South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System has been on an incredible journey to deliver significant improvements and transformation in areas such as stroke, cancer and mental health services, health inequalities, social prescribing and workforce, digital and capital developments. At the same time, we have focused on reducing unwarranted variation across our population - as reflected in our Five Year Plan (2019 – 2024). As we look ahead, we are seeking to appoint Executive Directors to support the CEO, Gavin Boyle, who is a value-based leader. Together you will be committed to delivering a highly collaborative approach, which will continue to put our people’s views - including staff - at the heart of all we do. With the support of an exceptional Executive Team of Directors our aim is to build on the work we have achieved over the past five years, to deliver on our five-year plan ambitions and provide the best health and care possible for everyone living across the area.
The Chief Finance Officer will ensure that the integrated care board (ICB) meets the financial targets set for it by NHS England and NHS Improvement, including living within the overall revenue and capital allocation, and the administration costs limit. Jointly with other system partners, the chief financial officer is responsible for ensuring that the integrated care system (ICS) delivers its financial targets. As a member of the unitary board (ICB), you will be jointly responsible for planning and allocating resources to meet the four core purposes of integrated care systems; to improve outcomes in population health and healthcare; tackle inequalities in outcomes, experience and access; enhance productivity and value for money and help the NHS support broader social and economic development.
You will bring substantial board level leadership experience and/or system leadership experience within a regulatory or similar environment with extensive experience of providing financial leadership, mentorship, and professional development at a very senior level with demonstrable outcomes.
If you share our values and ambitions for the people living in South Yorkshire and have the skills and experience to drive our Partnership forward, then we would be delighted to receive your application.
