Clinical Chair, Dr Alvin Low has resigned from Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, with immediate effect, after 2 years at the helm of the organisation.
A GP in Biggleswade and former Locality Chair for Ivel Valley, Dr Low was elected as Clinical Chair in 2016 to help the CCG strengthen its clinical leadership and respond to a challenging financial position, which saw the CCG subject to Legal Directions by NHS England.
Alvin Low said: “I have taken the difficult decision to step down as Clinical Chair of the CCG for health reasons.
“I have enjoyed my time as Clinical Chair immensely and it has been a privilege to serve communities in Bedfordshire, represent member practices and ensure that clinical and patient views are the centre of all commissioning decisions.
“I would like to thank CCG staff and the many stakeholders I have worked with for their hard work and commitment over the years. I will continue to be interested in and supportive of the organisation’s work from the perspective of a GP in Biggleswade.”
Sarah Thompson, Accountable Officer for Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group said: “Dr Low has made a significant contribution to the CCG during his tenure – working tirelessly to improve clinical excellence and put the CCG on a firm financial footing. We thank him for his service and wish him all the very best for the future.”
Roland Ginn, Vice Chair of the Governing Body will take the Chair on an interim basis, until a new Clinical Chair is appointed.
