NHS Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group

We are a GP led statutory NHS body responsible for commissioning the majority of health services for local people, including mental health care, urgent and emergency care, elective hospital services, and community care. At the same time, we are responsible for the health of over 285,000 people in Brighton and Hove and for addressing health inequalities across the city so that everyone has the opportunity to have the best health possible.

Our Governing Body ensures that there is good governance and also works to promote a culture of inclusion and strong engagement with patients, service users, their carers, GP members, the public and other stakeholders about the activity and progress of the CCG. 

The roles we are seeking to appoint are:
Independent Clinical Member – Secondary Care Clinician (£16,200 per year)
Lay Member Patient and Public Engagement (£16,200 per year)
2 x Associate Governing Body Lay Members (£7,200 per year)

We want to attract people who can provide assurance and oversight of the health and care system as a whole in Brighton and Hove, as well as ensure that all parts of our diverse community are heard and represented in our commissioning plans. You need to be passionate, possess the ability to be a strategic board level leader and be a strong team player who wants to see our CCG grow and prosper so that we commission the best health care possible for the population of Brighton and Hove. We are also keen to hear from people with passion for equality and personal or professional knowledge and experience from outside of healthcare, to contribute to new and different ways of thinking.

As part of the Governing Body, you will combine the duty to ensure effective governance, consistent with the Nolan principles and NHS values, with securing a long-term vision and strategy for the CCG. As part of the Governing Body, you must visibly and consistently demonstrate a commitment to developing and maintaining a healthy organisational culture and environment built on trust; openness; honesty; integrity; and inclusivity, and which promotes collaborative, system-level leadership that is focused on the best interests of all patients and service users and the wellbeing of all staff.    

We value and promote diversity and strongly encourage applications from people across groups that are underrepresented in our decision making currently; specifically Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people and Disabled people. We believe that the best leadership teams are those that reflect and are rooted in the communities they serve. To support that, our recruitment processes are inclusive and seek to ensure that appointments are made after a fair and open process so that the best people, from the widest possible pool of diverse candidates, are appointed. Most importantly, we recognise that skills and experience can be lived as well as learnt.

NHS Brighton and Hove CCG works in partnership with the other CCGs in Sussex, as the Sussex NHS Commissioners. We are signed up to the disability confident scheme and we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy.
