A PRACTISING GP with a wealth of experience and local knowledge is to head up a new committee designed to involve clinical experts at the heart of decision-making within NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney.

Dr Jamie Wyllie, a GP at the Falkland Surgery in Bradwell, will take up his position as chairman of the new Clinical Executive Committee (CEC) when it meets for the first time on Thursday.

Dr Wyllie, who has been instrumental in setting up the committee, will chair fortnightly meetings which will offer clinical input on decisions being considered by the PCT.

The CEC, which is made up of 14 members, has taken over this role from NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney's eight-member Professional Executive Committee

“This new committee is bringing practice-based and clinical commissioners right into the heart of the PCT and its decision-making processes,” said Dr Wyllie, who will chair the committee initially for a period of six months.

He added: “It is designed to make sure clinicians are involved at the right level of every decision which is made - which is vitally important as all of the PCT's decisions have an impact on service delivery on the ground.

“Four practising GPs will sit on the committee to provide the PCT with clinical input, in turn making sure the services our patients are offered continue to be of the highest possible quality.

“We will all be using our day-to-day experiences with patients to help ensure that their needs remain right at the heart of the PCT's commissioning work.”
