Here at Herts Valleys CCG we’re passionate about people. Working with our partners to help our people to stay well and get good health services when they need them is at the heart of everything we do.

It’s an exciting time for us. We’re an evolving organisation with a lot to do if we are to deliver our clinical strategy for west Hertfordshire in the next 5-7 years. And we’re looking for people who enjoy working in a fast-paced, vibrant environment that can help us achieve this.

So if you share our passion for people and want to make a positive change to their health and health services then we want to hear from you.

We can offer you a good working environment in a modern office building with an on-site restaurant and free car parking along with a generous holiday entitlement and NHS pension scheme.


 

Herts Valleys CCG, East and North Hertfordshire CCG and West Essex CCG serve a population of over 1.5 million, and are committed to commissioning high quality, safe health services on behalf of the population they serve. They aim to achieve this through the establishment of an STP approach to the provision of Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) support to the CCGs.

Do you have a passion for monitoring quality and driving change? 

Are you committed to influencing and facilitating improvements to ensure high quality care is provided to patients?
