Members of Governing Body


Lisa Nobes

Chief Nursing Officer

Lisa Nobes Chief Nursing Officer for Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG and West Suffolk CCG .

She started her nursing career at West Suffolk Hospital 29 years ago and moved to Manchester to train and practise as a children’s nurse at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital before relocating back to Suffolk to work at the East Anglia Children’s Hospice. She enjoyed working at both the hospice site and providing care to children at the end of their lives in their homes. She left EACH to become a Lecturer in Children’s Nursing and then a Senior Lecturer in Service Improvement, teaching service improvement methodologies to under and post-graduate health students. She has worked in the acute sector at both West Suffolk Hospital and Ipswich Hospital in senior nurse leadership posts, most recently as Director of Nursing at Ipswich Hospital before taking up the CNO role in the Suffolk CCGs.

Her academic background is in psychology, interprofessional healthcare education and health psychology and she has recently been appointed as Senior Visiting fellow at University of Suffolk.

She is interested in co-production of services with users and families and is keen to work with the wider Suffolk community to understand how services need transforming to meet the needs of Suffolk residents. Nursing remains a career that she loves and she is keen to work with senior nurse leaders across Suffolk to be the voice for nurses, midwives and AHPs.
