Fenland District Council (FDC) is looking to recruit a Townscape Heritage Officer for the delivery phase of the Wisbech High Street project. FDC has been awarded a grant of around £1.9 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for the implementation of the Project.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with a truly transformational project at the heart of historic Wisbech. The project will restore a number of buildings on the High Street, bring new uses back into empty properties and transform the derelict former Cook's Butchers site at number 24 into an exciting new area for public use.

The post holder will be the lead officer, working in partnership with a multi-disciplinary team, responsible for the delivery of the TH programme and its component projects, ensuring that it is managed in accord with the objectives and requirements of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Fenland District Council.

Appointment of one Independent Member to the Joint Audit Committee

The Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable are seeking an individual with the highest level of integrity and accountability to become a member of the Joint Audit Committee as an Independent Member.

We want the people of Cambridgeshire to have confidence in their police force and to feel safe. Performance is currently good with overall crime levels continuing to fall and detection rates steadily improving. More »

The Joint Audit Committee is an important, independent means of enhancing public trust and confidence in the governance of the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner and Cambridgeshire Constabulary. The purpose of the Committee is to ensure that appropriate risk controls and assurances are in place and to oversee all audit arrangements.

The Member will contribute to the development and effective discharge of the Terms of Reference of the committee. You will be a strategic thinker with the ability to analyse and interpret complex information and then challenge constructively. Experience of leading, conducting or reviewing audit activity is essential. Knowledge of the challenges of local policing would also be an advantage.

An allowance of £1,300 per year (based on 6 days a year) and expenses will be paid. Income tax and National Insurance will be deductible from all payments. The appointment is for a term of four years.

Application closing date – 12th September 2016

Candidate selection – week commencing 19th September 2016

Interview date – 29th September 2016

North Cambs Hospital engagement meeting

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 09:00 by Susanah Farmer

Have your say on MIU and Outpatient services in East Cambs and Fenland

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is inviting local residents to come and speak to them about MIU and Outpatient services in East Cambridgeshire and Fenland at three public engagement events.

As part of our Vanguard work, the CCG had to review all its urgent and emergency care facilities, including the Minor Injury Units (MIUs). The review highlighted that the three MIUs in the Cambridgeshire Fens (Ely, Wisbech and Doddington) do not meet national quality standards. More »

No decisions have been made about the future of these services and we are looking at a number of options for urgent and minor injury services in East Cambs and Fenland. We need to think about how we can provide all these services in a safe, high quality way – and for this we need your help.

The CCG is also looking for a new provider to take on Outpatient services in the area from April 2017, following Cambridgeshire Community Services having given notice in May 2015. Working alongside local hospitals and other care providers, the CCG is looking at how Outpatient services may better serve local residents, as part of the Sustainability and Transformation Plan, to ensure the best overall care for patients.

We know how valued and important these services are to local people and we remain committed to engaging with staff, clinicians, patients, public and partners as we develop our thinking. All of this work is still at an early stage.

A series of public engagement meetings have been set up to start these discussions:

  • Tuesday 16 August, 6.30-8.30pm at The Maltings, Ship Lane, Ely, Cambridgeshire, CB7 4BB
  • Tuesday 23 August, 7.00-9.00pm at Doddington Recreation Hall, Doddington Community Hospital, Benwick Road, Doddington, Cambridgeshire, PE15 0UG
  • Thursday 25 August, 6.30-8.30pm at the Rosmini Centre, 69A Queens Road, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, PE13 2PH

The meetings are open to all and will begin with a presentation, followed by a question and answer session. We hope the meetings will enable everyone to have a constructive discussion about the future of services, and how we can all work together.

Once we have more detail on the emerging options we will engage more widely on the ideas being considered. If any significant changes are considered necessary as a result of these discussions then there would be a public consultation before any decisions were made.
