New Appointment to Peterborough and Stamford Hospital

Dr Miles Langdon, Chair of the Governing Body for South Lincolnshire CCG has been successfully appointed to the role of Clinical Director for Medicine and Emergency Care at Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – a post he will be taking up in December 2014.

This new position will be part-time and will take up half of his working week. This will mean he will step down from the role as Chair of the Governing Body for the CCG. He will continue with his general practice in the St Mary’s Surgery in Stamford.

Gary Thompson, Chief Officer for South Lincolnshire CCG said:

“This is an excellent opportunity for Miles and we wish him every success in this new role with Peterborough Hospital. We will be sorry to lose Miles from the Governing Body as he has been instrumental in the success of the CCG during its first year in existence. His clinical leadership and strength of character has ensured that we are at the fore front of clinical commissioning in Lincolnshire.”

Dr Miles Langdon added:

“It has been a challenging first year for the CCG but as a team we have all worked together to ensure it has been successful. Working at Peterborough Hospital will mean that I am still involved with the workings of the CCG as they are the major acute provider for South Lincolnshire. Obviously I will be sorry to give up the role as Chair of the Governing Body but am sure that my successor will be as well supported as I have been.”

Stephen Graves, Chief Executive at Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“We look forward to welcoming Miles in December. His leadership skills and vast experience as a GP means he brings some excellent skills and insight into the running of our emergency and medical services. We have lots to do to enhance patient experience in this area and we are looking forward to working with him.”
