Our Executive Team

Each primary care network Clinical Director is part of the Confederation Strategic Board.

This is where we can represent the views of primary care from all the localities when decisions are made for health and care in the city.

Under the Strategic Board is an Executive, who make sure that the actions agreed by the Board are carried out.

The Executive Team is a mix of full and part time, clinical and non clinical posts.
