The chief executive of the Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will leave her role at the end of the year.

Commenting on Ms Magson's planned move, CCG chairman Dr Nicolas Small said: " . . . our patients, this organisation, and indeed the system as a whole, has benefited immeasurably from having Kathryn as our chief exec.
"Her impact has been truly transformational and she has been an absolute pleasure to work with.
