WORKFORCE: Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland PCT cluster has announced the non-executive directors who will sit on its new integrated board.

The board will make decisions on behalf of both NHS Leicester City and NHS Leicestershire County and Rutland, and is chaired by Cathy Ellis who was officially appointed in July.

The new board members are Gill Bridgen, Barry Finan, Paul Hackwood, Ruth Ingman, David Mell,        Daxa Patel and Brian Wilson.

All were previously non-executive directors on the former boards of either NHS Leicester City or NHS Leicestershire County and Rutland.

Ms Ellis said: “The role of the new cluster board will be to support the three clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, as well as the new health and wellbeing board, and enable the CCGs to gain early authorisation to take on their commissioning duties.”
