Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership (NHCP) is delighted to announce the appointment of Eileen Doyle as the county’s Integrated Care System (ICS) Transition Director.Eileen Doyle - ICS Transition Director

Starting in post in September, Eileen is working alongside NHCP and CCG colleagues as we progress on our journey towards becoming a fully-fledged statutory ICS by April 2022.

With 27 years of NHS experience, Eileen is already very familiar with the Northamptonshire health and care landscape, having previously covered the role of Hospital CEO at Kettering and Northampton General Hospitals.

Eileen has worked at a senior level in many organisations, largely based at acutes across the East Midlands and London. In recent years, she has contributed to a number of major change programmes.

Asked about her role within the ICS Transition, Eileen said: “I am delighted to join the NHCP team and partners for what is an exciting time of change. There is finally an opportunity for health and social care to work more closely together for the benefit of the local population.

“Although change can sometimes pose challenges, between us, we will now be able to design a system that breaks down many of our historical boundaries.

“This will ensure that the population of the county – irrespective of where you live or your background – can have equal and enhanced access to joined-up care, according to their needs.”
