NHS Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Board (ICB) plans and buys healthcare services for our local population.

Known as NHS Norfolk and Waveney, the organisation works with local people, health and care professionals, and partner organisations to improve the health and wellbeing of our population.
The organisation is part of the Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care System. A system dedicated to working with partners in local government, the voluntary sector and others and helping the NHS to support broader social and economic development and to tackle inequalities in health outcomes.
As we continue to embed system changes and further develop our approaches at Place, the ICB are now recruiting a Deputy Medical Director to support the ICB Executive Medical Director, and deputise across all aspects of their portfolio.

This will include leading the implementation of the Clinical and Care Professional (CCP) Leadership and Manifesto, and on matters pertaining to the medical, dental and pharmacy professional workforce for the ICS.
The role is part-time, with a 3-day per week commitment on a 2 year fixed-term basis.
Main duties of the job
The Deputy Medical Director will play a pivotal role in supporting the Executive Medical Director (EMD) in ensuring we can discharge the four nationally defined key aims of an ICS, as well as the three goals specific to Norfolk and Waveney ICS and the four key planks of the Joint health and wellbeing strategy for our ICP:

Joint H&WB Strategy for Norfolk & Waveney priorities:

To deliver these ambitious goals requires a complete transformation of our system and a new way of working for our staff. We want our clinical and care professionals to feel empowered and supported to speak up, to innovate and together to transform our services. We want to ensure that they feel part of a community and that they have a voice that is listened to and included in all the decision making made by our ICS
