The NHS Commissioning Board (NHSCB) has appointed Ming Tang as Managing Director of the South Yorkshire Commissioning Support Service (CSS).
The Board’s business intelligence programme leader was ear-marked for a senior CSS position during the first round of recruitment alongside eight other managing directors.
Ming Tang, who supported commissioning in the West Midlands, has nearly two decades’ experience in programme leadership and delivery of supply chain strategy, operations and transformation projects.
The NHSCB announced in June that it was to take on the responsibility of recruiting CSS leaders to ensure a balanced selection of experienced personnel. However, the Board faced problems after a lack of interest from existing PCT bosses and was forced to add a second round of recruitment.
It now hopes to appoint a further 14 CSS MDs in August 2012.
