Russam GMS, an award-winning provider of Interim Managers has appointed Paul Fleming as Head of Healthcare to lead its Healthcare Practice and develop its Interim Management offering to NHS and private healthcare organisations.
Russam GMS’s healthcare business has grown significantly in the past year. The company was appointed as supplier to the NHS Commercial Resources Framework and also awarded a three year contract with Buying Solutions as a supplier for its new Non-Medical, Non-Clinical framework agreement.
Paul will manage these contracts and grow the existing client base by placing high level Interim Managers into healthcare organisations in a number of disciplines, from Chief Executives, through to Transformation/Change Directors, Programme and Project managers through to IT Directors and Operations Directors and Managers.
Paul has over nine years’ recruitment experience and for the last three years has specialised in Interim Management placing Interims into NHS and private healthcare organisations. Prior to that, he was an analyst with a FTSE 100 business.
Paul says, “The healthcare sector will be facing unprecedented challenges this year in light of planned spending cuts. There is increased demand for better quality services at reduced costs and a need to tackle the uneven quality of services in different regions. Additionally, the creation of a patient-led NHS and the ongoing reform agenda will require organisations to continually develop to achieve world class excellence.”
“Many change and transformation programmes underway in the NHS are being led by experienced Interim Managers and with huge challenges ahead, there will be increased demand for Interims to help organisations run critical transformation projects, lead change and deliver greater efficiencies and cost savings,” he added.
Gary Lawton, Managing Director - Pubic Sector, Russam GMS said, “We are delighted to welcome Paul to Russam GMS. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the healthcare sector. We have a strong track record of delivering Interims to public sector organisations and under Paul’s leadership, we are confident of the future growth and development of the Healthcare Practice to meet the growing demand for Interim Managers.”
