After 4 years as co-chair of NHSCC, Dr Amanda Doyle has today stepped down from her role as her term of office comes to an end. Amanda was elected to the co-chair role in July 2014 as part of the inaugural elected board and has been a driving force in growth and development of NHSCC over the years.
She has successfully combined the role of co-chair with an ever-growing portfolio of local and national NHS leadership commitments over the years, and has been a passionate advocate for clinically led commissioning and the role they can play in the transformation of the system. As a practicing GP, she has always ensured that patient outcomes have been at the heart of the work that NHSCC does.
On her final day, Amanda said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years as co-chair of NHSCC, and I am immensely proud of what we have achieved for and on behalf of members. I would like to thank the rest of the NHSCC board, a group of high calibre NHS leaders who were a pleasure to work with.
As the NHS evolves towards more integrated systems it is important that clinical commissioners have national representation through NHSCC to ensure that the clinical leadership we have embedded is retained and built upon. I wish the organisation well for the future, and I look forward to still playing a role as a member.”
“It has been a pleasure to work with Amanda for the last 4 years, the last two as her fellow co-chair. On behalf of the NHSCC board, I would like to thank her for her leadership, her support and her enthusiasm for speaking up on behalf of clinical commissioners and ensuring the voice of the patient stayed at the heart of our objectives. She will be greatly missed but should rightly be proud of what she has achieved nationally on behalf of CCGs, and we wish her well with her local and regional roles.”
Julie Wood, Chief Executive of NHSCC, who has worked with Amanda since the inception of NHSCC in 2012 today said: “It has been a real pleasure to work with Amanda from when we set up NHSCC and she has played an integral role as we have developed since in both voice and influence. Her wisdom in ensuring we are always solutions focused and balanced has stood us in very good stead as has her championing of clinical leadership in our changing commissioning system. We will miss her on our Board.”
The NHSCC board will now elect a new co-chair to work with Graham to lead the organisation into the next phase of its development, and an announcement on that will be made in due course.
