Mark qualified at Manchester University in 1982 and he has worked as a GP in Aldbrough St John since 1988. It is a small, rural practice serving 3,250 patients over a wide area.
This is his first post in clinical management and he has been a member of the Governing Body since the CCG came into being three years ago.
Mark’s portfolio of responsibility includes being Clinical Lead for Transformation of Community Services, end of life care and innovation and technology. He is also the Caldicott Guardian for the CCG.
Mark is enjoying the challenges of working as a Governing Body Member and feels that the CCG has already made a significant difference to healthcare in the CCG area. The CCG has some ambitious plans and hopes to continue to make a difference despite the current financial constraints.
