• John Turner appointed AO across four CCGs
  • Joint appointment a first for the county 

A single accountable officer has been appointed to work across four Lincolnshire clinical commissioning groups.

John Turner is now working across South, South West, East and West Lincolnshire CCGs. He was previously accountable officer for South and South West Lincolnshire CCGs, and is also senior responsible officer for the Lincolnshire Sustainability and Transformation Partnership.

“I am looking forward to building on all that works well in our service and to working closely with our partners across the county,” Mr Turner said.

Kevin Hill, chair of South Lincolnshire CCG, said: “This role represents the first time we have had one accountable officer working across the four CCGs and it reflects our desire to work even more closely together for the benefit of our patients.

“It is important that we have the leadership in place that will allow us to achieve our aims and develop to meet the changing needs of our population and the constant evolution of the NHS.”
