NHS Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Sue Robinson as its new Clinical Chair.
The move will continue the increased involvement of family doctors and other clinicians in buying and planning local health services for people who live in the City. Dr Robinson was elected by fellow City GPs following the retirement of Dr Steve Townsend, who has held the position since the CCG was formally established in April 2013. She will formally take up her post on 1 April 2015.
