New managing director for West London CCG

Louise Proctor is to join NHS West London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) as the new managing director in May to lead the organisation as it transforms the way health services are provided to patients.

She is joining from Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn NHS Foundation Trust, where she is director of strategy and transformation and was previously director of integration.

Louise has worked across the NHS in commissioning organisations, mental health and acute providers and has held a number of roles within Northants Community Services (Northants Primary Care Trust) including managing director.

The current managing director, Carolyn Regan, will leave the organisation at the end of May.

Dr Fiona Butler, Chair of NHS West London CCG, said: “I am delighted that Louise is joining our organisation and I’m looking forward to working closely with her.

“Louise brings with her a wealth of NHS experience which will be invaluable at this important time as we improve the way we provide services to our patients.

“We are building extra capacity in primary care, looking to provide more services in a community setting, and working with our acute hospitals to make them specialist centres of care.

“I am confident that Louise has the determination and tenacity to make these changes.

“I would like to thank Carolyn for all her hard work and dedication in driving the organisation during its establishment and first year as a statutory body. She will be greatly missed and I wish her all the best for the future.”

Louise said: “I am delighted with my appointment as the new managing director of West London CCG and I am looking forward to forging lasting relationships with the staff of the CCG, GP members and local partners.

“I am really looking forward to the new and exciting challenge of leading West London CCG, and supporting the ambitious agenda that West London CCG and its partners are developing to improve care for our local population. I hope to bring energy and commitment to the organisation that will help us all to embrace the challenges that lay ahead for the NHS as a whole and West London CCG in particular.

“I have worked across many different areas within the NHS, from primary care to acute hospitals and I believe that my experience and understanding of where the separate parts of the NHS and social care can work well together, will help to support us on our journey to deliver the best, seamless services for the people of Kensington and Chelsea and Queen’s Park and Paddington.”
