Linda Prosser has joined Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) as Interim Chief Officer.
Chair of Wiltshire CCG, Dr Peter Jenkins said: “We look forward to working with Linda and are confident she is well-placed to lead us through the challenges we know are ahead of us”.
Ms Prosser, who joins the CCG from NHS England South West where she was Director of Assurance and Delivery, said:
“I’m delighted to join Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group. This is a very strong CCG with a good track record that is well placed to rise to the challenges facing the health and care system in the next few years. I am very pleased to be a part of that. We will be working very closely with our colleagues in Wiltshire Council to this end, including the appointment of a shared leadership role across the CCG and Adult Social care. I intend to provide the leadership and support to the CCG during this period up until this new post is taken up. Meanwhile we will continue to put local people at the heart of what we do to commission healthcare services that get the best possible outcomes for them.”
Ms Prosser replaces Tracey Cox, who took on the interim role in October 2016 alongside her Accountable Officer duties for Bath and North East Somerset CCG, and has now returned to that role.
