New Chief Accountable Officer joins CCG
Adam Doyle takes up his new role as Chief Accountable Officer of NHS Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group today, as the CCG moves into new offices at Hove Town Hall.
Prior to joining the CCG, Mr Doyle was Chief Accountable Officer at Merton CCG in South West London. Originally a trained physiotherapist, he has held a number of senior healthcare roles over the past nine years in both the public and private sector as a commissioner and a provider of healthcare services.
Commenting on his new role, Mr Doyle said:
"I have the privilege of leading a highly committed team that is dedicated to supporting local hospital, community and GP services through informed local planning and partnerships with local clinicians. I want all Brighton and Hove residents to know that the CCG is absolutely committed to talking to local people, listening to what they have to say and giving patients, families and carers the chance to influence how the NHS works for them."
Mr Doyle added:
“Brighton and Hove is a city I have a huge personal affection for and have harboured an interest in serving for some time. I am therefore delighted to now have the opportunity to lead the commissioning of NHS services in the city in partnership with local people and service providers.”
Also new to Brighton and Hove CCG this month is Chair Dr David Supple.
Dr Supple said:
“Having been a local GP for 26 years I have a good working knowledge of local health and social care issues and feel very positive about the benefits of GP practices and local services working together across the city to ensure genuine integration of services over the next five years. Adam’s arrival brings a new energy to our plans and I am looking forward to working with him, our member GP practices and our local communities to make real progress.”
