Jay Rebbeck is the Managing Director and Founder of Rebbeck.
Jay has extensive experience in reshaping international health systems and public services to deliver sustainable improvements in population outcomes by applying commissioning techniques.
Jay worked at the heart of the UK commissioning reforms from 2008 – 2015, advising NHS England on the 2010 clinical commissioning reforms. Jay went on to work with more than a dozen Commissioning Support Units and Clinical Commissioning Groups.
Based in Sydney since 2015, Jay is passionate about improving outcomes for communities and sees huge opportunities in cross-pollinating ideas and learnings across international healthcare and public service ecosystems in Australia, UK and Canada.
Jay works closely with Australian Primary Health Networks (PHNs) to support the implementation of the Australian commissioning reforms. Jay has facilitated three national PHN Commissioning Showcases and is the lead facilitator for Rebbeck’s Commissioning Academy. Jay has delivered commissioning masterclasses to more than 600 commissioning staff across Australia, UK and Canada.
In Canada, Jay is leading Rebbeck’s support to the Manitoba Province health system to introduce a commissioning and accountability model that aims to rebalance the Manitoba health system and advance the quadruple aims of healthcare across the Province.
Jay previously worked in the Ernst & Young UK health strategy commissioning practice and continues to collaborate with a strong network of UK based associates to deliver strategic advisory projects across Rebbeck’s international portfolio of clients.
Jay lives in Sydney with his wonderful wife Susie and three extremely enthusiastic kids, Heidi, Nina and Charlie. When he’s not coaching his kids’ hockey or soccer, Jay likes to get out in the ocean with friends and family to go surfing, stand up paddle boarding or swimming.
