Closing date: 5th June 2023
April 2022 marked the first anniversary of the partnership working between Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust (C&I), and Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust (BEH), who together form the North London Mental Health Partnership. The partnership has an ambitious five year strategy focusing on cutting edge, local, preventative, co-produced and person centred mental health and well being support to the diverse communities they serve across North London.
C&I itself provides a range of mental health and substance misuse services to people living in Camden and Islington, whilst also providing some further services to residents in Kingston. They serve some of the most diverse regions in the country, who also have some of the highest rates of mental health problems as well. With two inpatient facilities at Highgate and St Pancras, the majority of their services are delivered directly in the community, and they have contact with roughly 44,000 individual service users each year.
As well as being a part of the North London Mental Health Partnership, the Trust is a member of University College London Partners, one of the worlds leading academic health science networks. Their 2,300 staff are passionate about living their values, values that underpin their strategic priorities: we value each other, we are empowered, we keep things simple and we are connected. The development of the North London Mental Health Partnership builds on their existing focus of reducing health inequalities, tackling variation, and improving outcomes for service users, and they are looking for people who share their passion for these goals to join their board.
This is an exceptional opportunity for two non-executive directors to join the board, one with experience within mental health provision, and the other with significant strategic finance experience in large public organisations. Experience of shaping and delivering change across organisational boundaries and complex organisations would be welcomed too. One of these posts will also become the Vice Chair of the Trust.
The Trusts are committed to increasing the Board's visible diversity to better reflect the population and staff it serves and welcomes applications from all backgrounds. Ideally applicants should live in or have strong connections to the Trust's boroughs, or strong connections to the communities it serves.
