A key role for Forum Central is to recruit and support its members to be representatives on various health and care strategic groups in the city.
Health and Wellbeing Board
This is the partnership board in the city that oversees the strategic vision and delivery of health and care in Leeds.
The third sector representative is: Alison Lowe, Chief Executive, Touchstone.
Community Providers Network
This Network is chaired by Thea Stein, the Chief Executive of Leeds Community Healthcare. The group brings together all the main community-based providers. They work together and develop new and potential ways of working, especially in light of the Five Year Forward View.
There are two third sector representatives
There are a number of groups in the city looking at what an effective health and care workforce of the future needs to look like. Part of their work is to look at:
- How we support people to “work with” people in a different way
- How we address shortfalls in being able to recruit to roles
We have recruited these third sector representatives to the groups:
Tina Turnbull, CEO, People Matters
Andy Rawnsley, CEO, Aspire
Jane Li, CEO, Home-Start Leeds
Andrew McDermott, Service Development Manager, Leeds CIL
Data & Digital
Data and Digital are described as two of the big ways that health and care systems can work more effectively together, as well as work in a different way with people. Forum Central is influencing this area from a health and care third sector perspective.
