The Governing Body makes sure that the CCG runs effectively, efficiently, economically and with good governance.
It exists to serve patients, give confidence to the public, support clinicians and is accountable to NHS England.
Secondary Care Doctor
Dr Lorna Kerr is the secondary care doctor member of the Governing Body.
Dr Kerr is a full time anaesthetic consultant at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital (with a special interest in paediatric and spinal anaesthesia) since 1993. She has a broad knowledge of secondary care having been a Clinical Director and Chairman of Consultant Staff in a large acute hospital.
She is keen to improve the interface between GPs and hospital doctors, encourage better information sharing to streamline the patient journey and raise medical standards both in routine and emergency situations.
