As you will be aware we are in the process of making Board appointments to the new NHS Lincolnshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) which, subject to the passage of legislation through Parliament, will be fully established on 1st July 2022.
I am delighted to let you know that following a national recruitment campaign, Matt Gaunt has been appointed as Director of Finance Designate, and Martin Fahy Director of Nursing Designate, for our ICB. Both Matt and Martin are well known locally.
Matt is currently the Director of Finance & Contracting for the NHS Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, a role he has had since April 2020. Matt previously worked in the NHS in Lancashire, and prior to that in the Private Sector.
Martin is currently the Director of Nursing & Quality for the NHS Lincolnshire CCG, a role he has had since June 2020. Martin has previously worked in the NHS Birmingham and Solihull, in Bedfordshire and for NHS England. Martin is a mental health trained nurse by background.
I know that you will join with me in congratulating Matt and Martin on their appointments as we build the new Integrated Care System in Lincolnshire.
We are currently in the process of recruiting Non-Executive Directors, a Medical Director, and Partner Members for the new NHS Lincolnshire ICB Board, and I shall update you on the outcomes in due course.
With Thanks and Best Wishes
Chief Executive Designate
