Lindsay Rugman

Enhanced Health into Care Homes Manager (Quality Team),
Southampton City CCG

Most of my working life has been spent in education or working in the voluntary sector. I am a trained teacher and also hold a Masters in Business Management. I came to work at Southampton City CCG six years ago, fresh from working in the Charity sector for Mind, having never worked in the NHS before. Working with clinicians and commissioners and managing a team with a diverse skill set has been effective and productive. I bring a different perspective to the CCG and I really enjoy being part of something larger. I am a mum to five grown up boys and I live in the South Downs in a small village with my husband. I have a horse called Jasmine who I love to ride and a sheep called Dizzy.
