Ian Dodge, who has taken over from Rosamond Roughton, will be working alongside Dr Peter Melton, existing co-chair. 
An official statement said the appointment will “strengthen the connection” between NHS England and frontline clinical commissioning groups (CCGs). 
NHS Commissioning Assembly was developed to connect clinical and managerial commissioning leaders from CCGs and NHS England in order to improve outcomes for patients. 
Iain Dodge (pictured) said: “The NHS Commissioning Assembly is the main vehicle for all commissioning leaders to work together and it is encouraging to see so many of you are now involved in the various aspects of its work. 
“I am keen to explore with CCGs the future director of the commissioning system and to meeting and hearing director from you all about your success, your frustrations and hopes for the future.”
