Rachna began her NHS career in Leicester City in 2005. Since then, she has had a variety of single commissioner posts working in the Leicester City area, most recently as the Deputy Director of Strategy for Leicester City CCG. She has also held a number of commissioner posts covering elective and non-elective services within the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland footprint.
Rachna returns to the CCGs from University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust where she has been Deputy Director of Strategy since 2017, leading the strategic and operational planning function as well as delivering service transformation and improvement across the Trust. As the LLR health and care system has developed, her transformation portfolio has developed into whole system transformation, across all sectors.
Since June 2020, Rachna has held the position of Executive Director for Integration and Transformation for the three CCGs in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. In this role she is responsible for the design and delivery of transformed models of care at system level for urgent care, elective care, children’s services, maternity services, all age mental health and learning disability services, as well as integration of services at place and neighbourhood level.
