23 new Local Public Sector Directors appointed to LIFT Company Boards

Community Health Partnerships (CHP) is pleased to confirm the appointment of the first 23 Local Public Sector Directors who will serve on the Boards of the LIFT Companies (Local Improvement Finance Trust) across England. Further appointments will be made over the coming months.

The appointments are as a result of CHP’s changing role which from April this year, saw it take on the PCTs responsibilities for the LIFT programme, including PCTs shareholding – and subsequent position on the Board – of the LIFT Companies. 

Chief Executive Sue O’Connell commented:
“These appointments will play a key role in maintaining the important links between LIFT Companies and the local health economies they serve. In our search for suitable directors we have looked for individuals possessing the broad experience and personal attributes to get the best from partnerships.” 

The LIFT Companies are locally based joint ventures between public and private sector organisations, which bring together the resources and expertise to invest in some of the most disadvantaged parts of the country.   

CHP plays a key role in facilitating these public private partnerships to deliver a wide range of health planning and estate services that support health providers and local authorities achieve improvements in the estate.
