Director of Commissioning, NHS England (South West)
Linda Prosser trained as a Physiotherapist and worked in the UK and overseas before developing her career in NHS Management.
Initially managing services in the Acute sector, then community services, Linda moved in to commissioning almost ten years ago. The challenge of working to use a limited budget to purchase the best patient and population health outcomes has proved highly rewarding.
Since 2013 Linda has been the NHS England Director of Commissioning for this area; a role which includes working with CCGs to commission primary care services that effectively contribute to the local health economy.
