Chairman of Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group to step down

25 July 2017 – Dr Peter Jenkins, the Clinical Chairman at Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group, is to step down from his role at the end of September following a two year term.

Dr Jenkins, who has been in post for the last two years, said:
“Much has changed since I began my clinical career a number of years ago, but what remains unwavering, regardless of what job people do within the NHS, is the commitment to delivering the best possible service, where the patient is at the centre. This theme has been core to Wiltshire CCG and it’s been an absolute privilege to work with a fantastic team and supportive colleagues. I will leave knowing that the CCG’s vision of delivering health care closer to home remains in safe hands with a dedicated, committed group of people and I’m proud to have been part of helping to develop health services in Wiltshire that are aligned to the needs and demands of a growing and increasingly ageing population, now and into the future”
Linda Prosser, Interim Chief Officer at Wiltshire CCG added:
“On behalf of the Governing Body and all the staff at Wiltshire CCG I’d like to thank Peter for his commitment to health care services in our area, and the changes he has overseen. As with the NHS nationally, the last two years have been extremely challenging but Peter will leave us having successfully laid strong foundations for the future integration of health and care services”.

In line with the CCG’s constitution, an election for a new Chairman will be held amongst the CCG’s GP membership practices.
