My View, Dr Nick Tupper: Fond farewell and pledge for the future
This is a nostalgic moment for me as it's my last My View column as Chair of NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
What started off as a one-off contribution quickly progressed into a weekly collection of my thoughts.
Such is the magnitude of the NHS, and its importance to all of us, that I have never been short of topics to write about when it comes to health related matters in Doncaster. I became chair shortly after the government handed over responsibility for organising, buying and monitoring NHS services to local GPs. It has been an honour and privilege to carry out this role and the highlight of my career to date. But after three years at the helm I am this week handing over to my successor, Bentley GP Dr David Crichton, with my best wishes.
