Robert Garner has been appointed as interim Managing Director for Surrey and Sussex CSU after its former leader took a new role at the NHS Commissioning Board.
Clodagh Warde-Robinson has decided to leave the Support Unit in favour of a role with the NHS CB working on the programme to enable the externalisation of CSUs.
Mr Garner said he was “delighted to have the opportunity to lead the Surrey & Sussex CSU” and had already spoken to his predecessor to gain insight into the role.
One of his first tasks will be to meet with CCG accountable officers to explore solutions to deliver the best outcomes for commissioners and ensure sustainable arrangements in the future.
Mr Garner previously served as interim MD at the Norfolk and Waveney CSU.
