NHS Leeds CCG has appointed Tim Ryley as its new accountable officer.

Mr Ryley is expected to take up the role on 1 May as the current accountable officer, Philomena Corrigan, will retire at the end of this month.

He began his NSH career as a primary care service improvement manager 16 years ago.

Other past roles include director for strategy, planning and corporate at NHS Stockport CCG and programme director for the Stockport Together partnership.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Ryley said: ‘I am delighted to be appointed to the role of accountable officer and welcome the confidence shown in me to carry out such a critical and challenging role.

‘Our CCG focus will remain on improving people’s health outcomes and reducing inequalities, and setting standards that ensure services are safe and always high quality.

‘We will maintain our aim to commission and design services that are shaped around people in those communities that have the greatest need, and will continue to work closely with colleagues across the local authority.’

Following a merger of three CCGs in Leeds, NHS Leeds CCG was formed in April 2018, covering a population of around 870,000 people.

NHS Leeds CCG clinical chair Dr Gordon Sinclair said Mr Ryley ‘brings a wealth of experience from across the NHS’.

He added: ‘I am really looking forward to moving into the next chapter for the organisation under his inspirational leadership.

‘I would like to take the opportunity to recognise and thank Philomena for her successful development and inspirational leadership of the CCG over the past two years.’
