“The three CCGs are committed to commissioning and arranging the high quality services that local people deserve and we are confident that Simon’s appointment will allow us to continue this important work.”

Simon said: “I was born in Worcestershire, have lived here most of my life and I am passionate about making a positive difference to the health and wellbeing of local people. We know that there are a lot of improvements to local health services that are required and that there are improvements that we can make by working with and our partners.

“We have excellent staff working across the organisations, both clinical and non-clinical, it really is a fantastic team and it is a great privilege to have the opportunity of leading the three CCGs.”
