The Health Creation Alliance (THCA) is in the process of identifying and recruiting a new Chair to lead the organisation over the next 3-6 years and beyond. This follows our current Chair, Dr Brian Fisher’s announcement at our Annual Member Meeting in May, that he will be standing down. Brian has led the organisation over the last four years to its current position of impact and influence: THCA has been instrumental in influencing change on the ground, across systems and at national level and as a result, our profile has increased considerably.
We are now looking for an experienced and dynamic Chair who can offer fresh leadership and steer us through the next phases of our growth and development.
As the newly empowered Integrated Care Systems are starting to understand how Health Creation can guide whole-system transformation from the bottom up, THCA wants to fulfil its purpose as a national ‘go to’ alliance spreading skills and know-how and enabling professionals across sectors and systems to become equipped to confidently address health inequalities and create the conditions for people and communities to live in good health, through Health Creation.
We have many of the elements in place, a significant profile and are gaining ground. Building upon everything we have achieved so far our new Chair will work closely with the Chief Executive and Directors to take the organisation to a new level of impact. We value and promote diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all. We particularly welcome applications for this position from women, black, Asian and ethnic minority and disabled people and other groups who are at risk of poor health outcomes and under-represented in chair and non-executive roles. Once this individual is in post, we will consider appointing a Co-Chair to bring lived experience into the centre of our organisation.
We hope you are excited by this prospect and opportunity and that you will consider applying.

During the latter part of 2019 and through 2020, the Directors undertook a developmental review of leadership and governance of Health Creation Alliance. We adapted the eight Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOEs) in NHS Improvement’s ‘Well-Led Framework and applied them to our organisation. We intend to start again in January 2021. Here is short summary of our Well-Led Review [download].
Health Creation Alliance (NNHSA) Directors are responsible for the governance, oversight, strategic direction and overall delivery of the activities of Health Creation Alliance.
To fulfil these obligations, Directors must have specialist knowledge, expertise and experience relevant to the work of NNHSA. It is assumed that Directors will apply their professional expertise and experience in relation to the matters of NNHSA; indeed, applying this expertise and experience is critical to enabling NNHSA to fulfil its purpose.
The register will ensure that these interests are transparent and that there can be no perception that the functions and activities of NNHSA are being unduly influenced by a Director’s other interests, or their specialist knowledge and expertise [download].
The register of interests (the register) does not preclude Directors from having other areas of interests
