THE search has begun for a new person to take up a major role as chair of the North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust (NCIC).

The health care provision are looking for someone to become the new face of the Trust to replace Professor Robin Talbot, who leaves at the end of March.

A spokesman from NHS North Cumbria said: "We have a vibrant Governors’ Council, which the chair also leads, making sure the views of the communities are fed back to the board; and that people are involved in the co-production of services to support health and wellbeing of our communities.

"This is an exciting opportunity to get involved with healthcare in our community."

The paid role has a commitment of up to three days per week.

Applications for the job can be made on the NHS website, however the clock is ticking for those to express their interest, with the closing date being March 1.
