Campaign underway to select Chairperson for new HSE Board

By Mindo - 12th Jun 2018 | 52 views

<span>Minister Simon Harris said: “It’s clear that the current HSE structure does not provide adequate governance, as I outlined to the Sláintecare committee, and as has been reflected in the report. A key response to this is the establishment of a Board for the HSE and the appointment of a Chairperson. </span><br /><br /><span>“I’m pleased that the recruitment campaign to select the Chairperson is now underway. The Chairperson will be responsible for leadership of the HSE Board and will play a key role in establishing the Board governance structures and ensuring their effective and cohesive operation. The new Chairperson will play a central role in relation to the direction, leadership and corporate and clinical governance of the HSE, during a period of complex change.</span><span> </span><br /><br /><span>“The legislation to establish a Board for the HSE is being drafted as a priority and I intend to publish the Bill in July and bring it through the Oireachtas early in the Autumn/Winter session. It is my intention to establish the Board once the legislation has been passed.   The Board will be the governing body of the HSE and will be responsible for strengthening governance, oversight and performance of the HSE.</span><span> </span><br /><br /><span>“It is my firm view that a Board governance structure, with strong competencies across key areas, will contribute to strengthening the oversight and performance of the HSE pending its further reorganisation. Under the new legislation the Board will be accountable to the Minister for the performance of its functions and it will be responsible for the appointment of a CEO. The CEO will be responsible to the Board and the Board will take responsibility for assessing the CEO’s performance.</span><span> </span><br /><br /><span>“I firmly believe that the appointment of a strong Board, with a strong Chairperson, will help ensure robust governance of the HSE.”</span><span> </span><br /><br /><span>Details of how to apply for the position are available at </span><a href=”” target=”_blank”><span></span></a><span> </span>
