Could you be our new lay representative?

NHS South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is looking to appoint a new lay member to its Governing Body to replace Graham Morris who retires at the end of June 2019.

Graham joined the NHS in 2005 as a non executive director and audit chair of Clatterbridge Cancer Centre Foundation Trust, later becoming its vice chairman. He then joined the CCG in December 2013 as a lay member and vice chair after retiring from Urgent Care 24 as its director of finance.

Dr Craig Gillespie, chair of NHS South Sefton CCG, said: “We would like to wish Graham all the best on his retirement. Graham has contributed greatly to the work of the CCG and we thank him for his dedication in carrying out this strategic role.

“We look forward to welcoming a new lay member to our Governing Body to continue the good progress we have made so far.”

The lay member role the CCG is recruiting to will bring strategic insight and impartiality to the Governing Body, overseeing key elements of governance, including audit and remuneration.

The candidate will be expected to chair the audit committee and be the CCG’s Conflict of Interest Guardian. They will be asked to fulfil the role of the deputy chair for the Governing Body and the term of office will be for three years.
