He also sits on the NHS England Specialised Services Collaborative Commissioning Programme Oversight Group.

Speaking about his departure, he said: “It has been a huge privilege being co-chair of NHSCC, and with the support of my co-chair Amanda Doyle and the NHSCC board, we have driven the organisation forward and I am very proud of the amount we have achieved for our members.

“NHSCC has been at the forefront of the co-commissioning primary care agenda, we have ensured that there will be no further cuts to CCG running costs and have proved influential on a number of important issues such as the tariff threshold, specialised commissioning and the CCG assurance framework,” he added.

NHSCC chief executive Julie Wood said he played a “critical role” in establishing NHSCC as the independent voice of CCGs.

“Whilst we are very sad that he cannot continue as NHSCC co-chair we are sure that he will use his own clinical leadership to support a robust and vibrant primary care service locally,” she said.
