New face joins the CCG
A hospital consultant with a wealth of experience of advising on quality improvements for patients has been appointed to NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) governing body.
Rob Mallinson has been a consultant in acute medicine since 2000, working first at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust before joining Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust in 2005. He has held a variety of roles in Ipswich, including clinical director for medicine and medical director, and will soon begin a new role as an associate medical director for transformation.
Dr Mallinson has been involved in a variety of significant transformation projects which have seen him work closely with partners from across health and social care. This includes remodelling Suffolk’s stroke services, as well as introducing an intravenous antibiotic service for outpatients and frailty assessment services.
He also brings with him a raft of experience of working with CCGs, as he holds the secondary care clinician role with North and South Norfolk CCGs.
Dr Mallinson takes up his role with Great Yarmouth and Waveney on 2 July and will act as an independent member of the CCG. He will be responsible for making sure the CCG takes full account of the care patients receive in secondary care setting in its approach to commissioning.
“I am looking forward to beginning work with the CCG, and will be focusing on making sure services are relevant and the best possible quality,” said Dr Mallinson.
“I will be advising the governing body on quality matters and offering support to help them deliver their duty of providing high quality, safe and responsive services to local people.”
Dr Liam Stevens, interim chairman of the CCG, said: “We are pleased to welcome Rob to the governing body and look forward to working closely with him to further improve local health services in the future.”
