Ross joins CNWL from NHS Southwark CCG, where he is Managing Director and will start work at CNWL at the beginning of May 2020.


As well as day to day leadership of the CCG, Ross has led the local delivery of NHS system reforms and the development of south east London’s Integrated Care System.  Within the ICS Ross has also jointly led south east London’s Community Based Care programme, working with primary and community care organisations from across their system.

Ross started his career working with the global technology firm Accenture and has worked across both private and public sectors.  Prior to joining the NHS Ross jointly founded the award winning public services consultancy, Prederi.  There Ross ran the firm’s NHS practice and worked with NHS and local authority clients across London and the South East to solve their business challenges and transform local health and care services.

Ross has worked at Board level with NHS trusts, local authorities, CCGs and STPs, as well as with general practice and emerging integrated care partnerships.  Much of his experience has focused on strategy and leading change, including the supporting information, technology and estate solutions.

Ross says, “I’m truly delighted to be joining the CNWL team. This is a values led organisation that is focused on delivering the best possible outcomes through putting those people who use its services at the heart. I’m excited to be joining as we start to implement the NHS Long Term Plan with all this means for us as an organisation and how we work with our ICS partners.”

Ross lives in south east London with his wife, an arts psychotherapist, and two sons.  When he’s not spending time with family he enjoys cycling and martial arts.

“A lot of my free time is spent with my kids ranging from football clubs to Brazilian jujitsu classes. However I’m also a slow but enthusiastic road cyclist when I get chance.  I’m currently training for a sponsored cycle to Amsterdam as well as the Surrey 100 later this year.”

Claire Murdoch CBE, Chief Executive of CNWL, said, “CNWL is a good partner in the NHS and social care and Ross will help us build on that, helping us to navigate the new architecture and the opportunities for better ways of delivering patient care. Welcome Ross!”
