New Non-Executive Director appointment
NHS Improvement has today confirmed the appointment of Clive Sparrow as a Non-Executive Director at CLCH.
Clive is an interim director and strategy consultant, providing services at Board level for clients negotiating their way through significant financial challenges and change.
He has previous experience as a management consultant with two accountancy firms, Grant Thornton and PwC. For three years he worked as a Director in HM Treasury, driving successful delivery of Europe's largest change programme. He has also set up and led two profitable start-up companies.
Angela Greatley, Chair at CLCH said: "We're delighted to be welcoming Clive to the Board and look forward to his contributions in guiding the organisation through an increasingly complex commissioning landscape."
"Clive's wealth of experience spanning government and commercial sectors will be a valuable asset to the Trust."
Outside of his professional career, Clive is a Trustee of The Childhood Trust, a charity that supports children living in poverty in London, and Ambition, a leading national youth charity.
Clive said: "I see it as a real privilege to have this opportunity as a NED to make a contribution to the work of CLCH. The successful reputation that the Trust has for high quality healthcare, the focus on an integration strategy and sound financial management were all characteristics that attracted me.
"I am passionate about making public services better and especially like complex, difficult challenges. At a time of huge uncertainty, when the NHS is rethinking the way it delivers services, the challenges facing CLCH are hugely motivating to me. I believe that the skills I have developed in my career are transferable and will allow me to bring independence, external perspectives and a breadth of experience."
Non-executive appointments to NHS Trusts made by the NHS Improvement are subject to the Governance Code for Public Appointments.
Clive has been appointed from 1 April 2017 until 31 March 2021. He has not declared any political activity in the last five years.
