National Information Board, Recruitment of 5 Independent Members

Modern information and digital services are key to improving the quality and sustainability of health and care.

The National Information Board (NIB) is the senior advisory group, a collaboration of 29 organisations across the health and care system, along with appointed independent representatives, which guides and agrees strategy, requirements and priorities for information and technology across the system. The NIB is an advisory mechanism to Secretary of State, and is the principal vehicle for identifying and driving forward the next stage of transformation of information and technology for better health and care. Its key future objectives are:

  • keeping an overview of delivery of the portfolio of domains and programmes delivering NIB’s framework for action, Personalised Health and Care 2020 and providing strategic steers and feedback;
  • to advise on policy, including by looking beyond the implementation of Personalised Health and Care 2020 to identify future opportunities and needs that need to be reflected in the existing portfolio of delivery programmes or be reflected in the next spending review period, which will best benefit patients and service users, and meet clinician and care giver requirements; and
  • to support strategic communications

Bringing your national or international expertise, you will offer a committed, wider perspective, innovative suggestions and the confidence to challenge the status quo.

Passionate about utilising data and technology in improving service user outcomes and assisting professionals and citizens to make more informed decisions about health and care systems, this is an opportunity to contribute to change.

There is a time commitment of up to 6 meetings per year and posts offer no remuneration other than reimbursement of expenses, paid in line with Department of Health policy and a reading fee of £125 per meeting.
