The post holder will contribute to the provision of expert management and advice services to Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates (SGHSCD) and NHS Boards on all aspects of the performance management, ensuring strategic benefits are planned and delivered, working closely with SGHSCD and Scottish Futures Trust (SFT).  The post holder will participate in the delivery of the PPP Annual Work Plan approved for NHS Scotland by the PPP Joint Project Board.
