An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced NHS professional to support South West London Clinical Commissioning Groups across activity planning and assurance functions.  This will involve working as part of multidisciplinary teams across CCGs to maximise performance within the constraints and flexibility of evolving national guidance, in accordance with CSU values and behaviours.
