“I would like to thank her for all her efforts in her role as chair over the last few years and wish her the best for the future.”

David Evans, joint accountable officer at Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin CCGs, said: “Jo has been an invaluable colleague who has played a pivotal role within the CCG.

“She has provided a local health perspective and an understanding of the patient experience within primary care which underpins our work.

“Colleagues across both Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin CCGs wish her the very best and would like to thank her for her contributions.”

Dr Leahy will be continuing to work with the Time for Care Team at NHS England on quality improvement projects with primary care, as well as the Covid-19 Clinical Assessment Service.
