In 2014 NHSCC moved from the interim governance arrangements that had been in place since 2012, into a more long term stable governance system to ensure that our members have a truly independent, representative voice.
At the heart of these arrangements was the creation of a democratically elected NHSCC board to provide strategic leadership for the organisation and its six networks. The board, which is made up of a blend of clinicians, managers and lay people from our membership, was secured through a democratic election process ensuring we are fully member led and are open and transparent.
The focus of the board is to steer the organisation and its members through the high profile challenges facing commissioners and to shape the work programme and priorities of NHSCC. Our board members also play a key role in building up and maintaining relationships with a wide range of national stakeholder organisations such as NHS England, Department of Health, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), Care Quality Commission (CQC), NHS Improvement and the Local Government Association (LGA).
