WORKFORCE: A new chief officer has been announced for a London CCG that has seen significant governance problems.

Cathy Gritzner will be the organisation’s first substantive chief officer since the departure of John Morton in July 2014.

The CCG has seen allegations of conflict of interest since then and a senior manager was dismissed after raising concerns.

Ms Gritzner will take up her post at the start of April.

She is currently chief operating officer at Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network.
