Introducing CIC’s new Chief Executive
Community Integrated Care Chair, Simon Attwell, welcomes Mr Neil Matthewman to the post of Chief Executive of Community Integrated Care.
Neil, who took up his new post on the 8th August 2011, has held various senior roles within the NHS, leaving his current position as Managing Director for Health Services, NHS Blackburn with Darwen Care Trust Plus, to join the Community Integrated Care.
Amongst Neil’s many achievements, he was responsible for the integration of NHS commissioning services with those of the Local Authority, resulting in an annual transfer of £85m of funds to the PCT. Also, on behalf of the PCT, he has been at the forefront managing major changes in the Health Service including contracts with Acute Trusts and the new GP-led consortia commissioning.
Simon told staff “Neil joins CIC with a formidable reputation as a strategic thinker and planner. He has vision, clarity of purpose, flexibility and is a clear communicator. We believe that Neil is the right person to take the charity forward, especially in the current economic climate where a commitment to strengthening quality services and building solid relationships with Local Authority and PCT partners is needed.”
