Simon Banks – Halton CCG (24.09.12)

Yesterday we had the pleasure of catching up with Simon Banks, Chief Officer Designate for the Halton CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group).

We discussed CCG developments (since we last met up in May) including the addition of 4 Lay People to the Board, the CCG’s Authorisation Application and much more.

Many thanks to Simon (who was full of a cold and very busy) for making the time to speak to us.

If you have any comments about what Simon had to say, feel free to leave a comment below or e-mail Laura Neilson via lneilson@haltonsthelensvca.org.uk.

Many thanks,

Matthew Roberts
