Holding answer received on 03 March 2020

Professor Mike Thorne was appointed as independent chair on a two year fixed term in October 2019 following open competition and receives £60,000 per annum.

The executive lead for the Health and Care Partnership is a joint role with the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Joint Accountable Officer. At the conclusion of the initial recruitment process in January no appointment was made. The Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership are at the initial stage of re-commencing the recruitment process for a permanent appointment. In the meantime, to ensure continued momentum, Anthony McKeever has been selected to be appointed as interim Joint Accountable Officer for the five CCGs and the executive lead for the Health and Care Partnership. The interim Joint Accountable Officer and executive lead for the Health and Care Partnership will be paid in line with standard salary bands. This is in line with other interim accountable officer roles across the country and meets national guidance set out for the recruitment to such positions.

Dr Anna Davey, chair of Mid Essex CCG, receives no remuneration for her role as convenor on behalf of the five CCGs.
