Issue details

Integrated Care Board Place Director

Subject to the passing of legislative proposals regarding changes to the Health and Care Bill a new statutory post of Integrated Care Board Place Director has been created.

The post holder will report to the new Integrated Care Board for Cheshire and Merseyside when it is established on the 1st July 2022.

The post holder will be responsible for the leadership, strategy, effectiveness and delivery of a range of NHS functions for integrated health and care services.

Partners in Sefton proposed that the Place Director could be a jointly accountable role to both the Integrated Care Board and the Council, with the post holder carrying on Council responsibilities alongside their accountability to the Integrated Care Board. This model would in principle enable greater integration.

Following an open and transparent competitive recruitment process, Sefton Council's Executive Director of Adult Social Care and Health has been offered that role. However, in order to be able to accept the post Cabinet approval is required.
