Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH) has announced that Laura Churchill has been appointed as the Trust’s Director of Strategy, Partnerships and Integration. The appointment was made following a formal and open recruitment process led by the CLCH Board.
Laura is currently Director of the London Integrated Care System (ICS) Network, a role that she has held for the last five years. In this role, Laura has worked closely with the five Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) and regional partners on the delivery of the London-wide portfolio and has been leading the development of the London-wide strategy.
Passionate about co-creation and working in partnership, Laura’s recent achievements include leading programmes of work to oversee the delegation of dental, optometry, and pharmacy services commissioning to the ICBs; developing an operating model for London’s improvement and transformation architecture; and creating a framework for integration to support leadership at ‘place level’ across London.
Prior to this, Laura was the Executive Director of NEL Healthcare Consulting, part of NEL CSU, where she set up and led the first CSU-based consultancy unit. Before joining the NHS, she worked as a management consultant in PA Consulting Group.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to work as part of the CLCH executive team to further their relationships across the provider collaboratives and for integration with other parts of the systems that the Trust serves.”
James Benson, Chief Executive Officer at CLCH, said:
“CLCH is committed to working in partnership across London and Hertfordshire in our four ICSs. I am pleased that Laura will be joining us to lead on this work, and specifically working with colleagues to ensure that we promote the best models of integrated care for our residents.”
Laura will join the CLCH Board in spring 2024.
