Our structure and governance
NHS Informatics Merseyside is hosted by Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust and is owned by five NHS partner organisations.
Our NHS partner organisations currently include Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group and Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group.
Each partner organisation takes several core services from NHS Informatics Merseyside and has responsibility for the strategic direction and management of the service as part of their partnership agreement.
In addition to our partner organisations, we also work closely with a range of customers who include major acute and specialist trusts, community and mental health services, clinical commissioning groups, general practitioners, wider health and care services and professional bodies.
Our overall business plan, and monitoring the way we work to achieve our strategic objectives, is the responsibility of our Partnership Board.
Partnership Board and Operational Committee
Informatics Merseyside's Partnership Board is made up of the chief officers of our partner clinical commissioning groups and the chief executives of our partner NHS trusts.
The Operational Committee is a sub-group of the Partnership Board, with representatives including partner organisation IT and finance leads.
This group is designed as a vehicle for strategic and innovative thinking, and works to develop partner internal strategies and delivery plans, and to share these among members to ensure that any opportunities for collaboration and economies of scale are identified.
