Top nurse to lead new integrated care group in Nottinghamshire

A top nurse has been appointed to lead a new health partnership in Nottinghamshire described as an alliance of NHS providers, commissioners, and local authorities.

Rachel Munton has been chosen as the first independent chair of the mid-Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Provider (ICP).

Munton has 40 years’ experience in senior and clinical roles in the local are and will chair the ICP covering Mansfield, Ashfield, Newark and Sherwood.

The partnership brings together NHS commissioners, providers and local authorities which it says aims to “work together to deliver care by agreeing to collaborate rather than compete.”

The ICP oversees hospitals, community services, mental health services and GPs, and includes social care, independent, and third sector providers.

Munton has spent time as a lay member of the Mansfield and Ashfield, Newark and Sherwood CCGs’s governing bodies and has most recently worked as the managing director of the East Midlands Academic Health Science Network.

Richard Mitchell, the chief executive of Sherwood Forest Hospitals FT, is the executive lead of the ICP.

Wendy Saviour, managing director of the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS, which includes the ICP, said: “Professor Munton’s local knowledge and leadership skills from years of experience working across the East Midlands will be a strong asset to the partnership.

“The new ICP board, with Rachel as chair, will play a pivotal role in enabling local providers to forge closer links between community, mental health and social care services.”

Munton said she was “delighted” to take on the position and said: “These are exciting times for all the organisations involved in transforming local services.”

“I strongly believe that we have a real opportunity to make a difference through our collective endeavour.”
