We are delighted to have had our inaugural board meeting on Monday 14th March 22. Our board, which is shared across both networks, brings together senior clinicians, managers, commissioners and in future, children, young people and their families from across the East Midands.
Our aim is to facilitate collaboration across organisational and georgraphical boundaries to ensure children and young people receive the right care, at the right time, in the right place, delivered by appropriately skilled practitioners to improve outcomes. Our speakers gave good insight into the networks progress so far, but also of how the networks will work with the wider system in the future as the commissioning infrastructure evolves.
We are still actively seeking board member representation from Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust , United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust. Meetings are held quarterly for between 2 - 2 1/2 hours. If you have delegated decision making responsibilities, in relation to paediatric critical care and surgery in children, please contact Claudia MacCurvin, Network Manager, who will be happy to go through the nomination process with you.
