Chair's blog - final blog from Dr Tim Moorhead

Chair's blog - final blog from Dr Tim Moorhead
28 August 2019


Hi everyone and welcome to my final blog as chair. 

You may be aware that earlier this year I announced my intention to step down as chair of the CCG and governing body locality GP. I am now coming to the end of my notice period and will be handing over to governing body at the meeting in September.

Although I will continue in my role as GP at Oughtibridge Surgery where I am a senior partner I am looking forward to having more spare time to play in my bands and maybe take a few motorbike holidays!

As I am leaving, the CCG is about to elect a new chair, who will be chosen from one of the GPs sitting on governing body. This will be announced in the coming days or next week.

I wish whoever takes over from me all the very best in this challenging but exciting and rewarding role.

Before the process for the new chair started, we appointed two new GP members of governing body, Dr David Warwicker who has been appointed as nominated locality GP representative for north locality and Dr Andrew McGinty who has been appointed as nominated locality GP representative for Hallam and south locality.

David was born and raised in Sheffield. He works as a GP Partner at Mill Road Surgery in Ecclesfield, and also as a clinical assistant in dermatology at Royal Hallamshire Hospital. He is looking forward to upholding the aims of the CCG - in particular, improving the quality and equality of healthcare in Sheffield.

Andrew is currently clinical director at Sheffield CCG where he is the clinical lead for active ageing, cancer, end of life care and long term conditions, he will continue in this role. He is also a GP at Woodhouse Medical Centre where he has worked for over 20 years, having previously worked in anaesthetics. Welcome to both!

Before I sign off for one last time I would like to say how much I have really enjoyed my time as chair. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at the CCG, my follow governing body members and the wider health and care system in Sheffield for making my time in post interesting and fulfilling 

Best wishes
