Caron Williams, Director of Commissioning and Strategy

Caron Williams has enjoyed a career which has spanned both the private and public sector with her progressive approach to projects earning her endeavours national recognition for her work in EoLC and a ministerial recommendation for the Transforming Community Services programme she undertook for NHS Warwickshire.

She started her career with eleven years in private industry beginning her basic training in research and development, procurement for blue chips, and then new product development for GC Telecommunications - delivering new products to market. With a track record of delivering on time and to cost she was eventually promoted to the position of Senior Officer in worldwide product development.

Her work then took her to the Channel Islands where she diversified into the shipping industry as an General Manager supporting operations for 4 shipping lines.

After moving back to the UK she began to work in health and social care starting at Coventry City Council where she developed markets and set up services that hitherto didn’t exist - working with providers to ensure they could deliver to meet local population needs.

Her career in the NHS was launched in 2008 when she started working for Solihull Care Trust developing their end of life care services and continued life care services. Those services were regarded as the best of their kind in the UK at that time.

She then moved with the NHS into Warwickshire where she transferred and transformed community services in 2010 and received ministerial recommendation. This work was also cited by The Kings Fund - an independent charity working to improve health and health care in England.

More recently she moved from Warwickshire to NHS West Leicestershire CCG as a board member responsible for strategy and planning and during this time delivered the Better Care Fund. During her time there she also delivered the majority of the early shaping and development work for the five year plan in Leicestershire and Rutland.

Caron is a member of the Governing Body, Executive Directors meeting, Council of Members, Finance and Performance Committee.
