Meet our Executive Director of Finance and Contracts 

  Lynda is a chartered accountant by profession and has worked in the NHS for nearly 20 years. After qualifying, Lynda moved to the NHS in Wales initially in audit and then as Associate Director of Finance, looking after the financial accounts, a number of secondary care contracts and GP fund holding. After a period of 4 years Lynda moved to the North West Regional Office as the primary care finance lead for the North West region, and became the North West Red Book expert! With the changes of government Lynda became involved in the development of many primary care initiatives including PCGs, PMS, PDS and ultimately PCTs. Feeling the need to get back to the coal face, Lynda moved to South Cheshire and became the Head of Finance for the Central Cheshire and Crewe and District PCGs, this involved managing a devolved PCG based financial budget and a contract portfolio including Mid Cheshire NHST. After the advent of PCTs, Lynda moved into the commissioning team, taking on performance, information and contracting and their related management accounting functions. This ultimately involved the development and implementation of payment by results. As the contracting function became more complex and the PCTs in East and Central Cheshire merged, Lynda became more focused on the contracting agenda.
