ICS Chairs Group
The ICS Chairs group has a key role in supporting the work of Executive Leaders across the ICS. The group brings together non-executive and clinical chairs of NHS organisations with the elected members who chair the Health and Wellbeing Boards in Suffolk and Essex and chairs of trustees for key local non-statutory sector organisations including Healthwatch and local hospices.
The group meet monthly. As well as providing an important forum for the development of ICS governance, each month the group also review papers that are going to the ICS Partnership Board and provide feedback through two the Chair, Sheila Childerhouse and Vice-chair, Mark Shenton who are also members of the ICS Partnership Board.
A number of non-executive ICS Subgroup Chairs also support the ICS Independent Chair by providing non-executive oversight to sub-groups operating under the ICS Partnership Board.
