Overall leadership of each CDS is provided by a service director and/or a clinical director, with a multi-disciplinary leadership team (including a range of clinical professions as well as business, finance, HR, IT and estates and facilities support staff) providing additional leadership and governance oversight. The CDS model has helped us continue to improve services for patients and carers. Work continues to provide consistently high quality services, working together in partnership with each other, the people who use our services and other organisations.
