New leadership arrangements at Enfield CCG

Paul Jenkins has resigned from the Interim Chief Officer role at NHS Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to take up new assignments in interim healthcare management. Paul has been with Enfield CCG since August 2015.

Sarah Thompson has taken up the role as our new Interim Chief Officer as of Monday 23 May. Sarah last worked in Enfield as Borough Director of Enfield Primary Care Trust (PCT) up to 2012. She has NHS chief executive level experience and has worked extensively across London and the West Midlands in a broad range of senior commissioning roles.

Dr Mo Abedi, Chair, said:

“I am delighted to welcome back Sarah on behalf of the Governing Body and wider CCG. Sarah has a demonstrable record of commitment and success in her extensive NHS career and will be a real asset as the CCG moves into its next phase.

 “I would like to thank Paul for leading us through a period of challenging times. During his time with us, Paul has led a number of new service developments including the procurement of an integrated urgent care NHS111 and GP out of hours service across the five north central London CCGs.

“On behalf of the organisation and myself, I would like to wish Paul every success in his future career.”
