WORKFORCE: NHS Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland’s director of finance Sue Bishop has been selected to sit on a national group looking at preparing financial leadership for, and beyond, the transition.

She will be working with a select group of other directors of finance from around the country to design a process that ensures future chief financial officers across CCGs, the NHS Commissioning Board Field Force and Commissioning Support Units are properly accredited to do the job before they are locally appointed.

The group will report to David Flory.
