He is also co-ordinating editor of the Cochrane Heart Group and a consultant to the World Health Organization. Until last year, he chaired the NHS R&D Health Technology Assessment commissioning board. Ms Griffiths is a senior strategic manager with 11 years' experience as CEO of an NHS health authority, most recently at West Surrey.
