Lynn Dalton, Director of Primary Care Commissioning and Contracting
I have over 30 years’ experience in the NHS, qualifying as a Registered Nurse in 1980 at Northwick Park Hospital. I have worked in acute, community and general practice settings where I specialised as a Community Nurse Specialist and Professional Nurse Lead before moving to commissioning.
I have over 10 years’ commissioning experience of Primary Medical Services (GP contracts), out of hours/111 services, offender health and managing a range of procurements. As Director of Primary Care I am responsible for commissioning of primary medical service contracts in Herts Valleys this is following the CCG taking over commissioning responsibility of these contracts from NHS England in April 2017. I am a firm believer the CCG is best placed to commission primary medical services that provide high quality, sustainable services whilst ensuring our GP practices are fully integrated in the wider system supporting the development and delivery of new models of care that will succeed in improving the health and wellbeing of our patients.
