Gloucestershire ICS Creative Health Hub Programme Project Lead

Gloucestershire ICS Creative Health Hub Programme Project Lead

Brief for a Project Lead

The National Centre for Creative Health is delivering a programme of Creative Health Hubs in partnership with NHS England and Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) in Gloucestershire; West Yorkshire and Harrogate; Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin; and Suffolk and North East Essex; to explore models for integrating creative health at a systems level.

NHS England is supporting the secondment of a post of Programme Manager to work across all four systems. In addition to this, the National Centre for Creative Health has been commissioned to deliver a ‘deep dive’ into the Gloucestershire ICS.


How can existing Creative Health programmes be further embedded across Gloucestershire and how can the work be spread to include other care pathways as the Integrated Care System develops? How can we best show impact to support this? What is needed to mainstream the work over time?

This brief is for a Project Lead who will use co-production methods to co-produce recommendations and outputs.


  • Analysis of existing data and an Impact Report including visuals, infographics and images
  • A plan for future development and new areas of focus, setting out high level timelines, milestones, and suggesting what resources would be needed.
  • Co-produced recommendations as above.
