Avni Shah, Director of Primary Care Transformation
I am a pharmacist by profession and have a masters in Public Health. I’ve worked in NHS post qualification across acute, community and Medicines Optimisation teams. In 2005 I had an opportunity to implement practice based commissioning and GP contracts which set my future career journey and I haven’t look back from that time.
I have over 10 years’ of experience in commissioning, transformation and procurement across various programmes previously in London before joining Herts Valleys CCG in 2013. My work is driven by wanting to improve outcomes for patients and I’m passionate about working collaboratively with a range of stakeholders to redesign end-to-end patient pathways, commission new models of care and transform services across organisation boundaries in order to achieve this. I became acting Director of Commissioning at Herts Valleys CCG earlier this year and am looking forward to taking on this exciting role of Director of Primary Care Transformation.
