Suffolk & North East Essex Shadow Integrated Care System

Independent chair - candidates meet system stakeholders

July 2019

Three candidates who’ve been shortlisted for the system’s Independent Chair’s position have met a number of stakeholders as part of the selection process.

The Independent Chair will be responsible for overseeing the work of the STP Board, chairing each board meeting and holding the system to account.

They will also act as an ambassador for the Suffolk and North East Essex ICS, building and enhancing relationships with a wide range of stakeholders locally, regionally and nationally.

Sheila Childerhouse – who’s the Chair of the West Suffolk Hospital – said she was pleased that it was a really inclusive process.

She said: “We have taken all of the feedback from the stakeholder panels which will be shared with the final interviewing team.

“I am also pleased to say that we’ve had a good group of candidates from this cohort and will be inviting them for an interview on 4 July.”

Ann Radmore, NHS England’s Regional Director of the East of England, along with health service and local government representatives, will also be involved in the final stage.
