Lay Member Required for Wakley Sub Locality

Lay Member

Your local health services need YOU

We are looking to recruit a patient representative, known as a lay member, to our local health services group.

From April 2013 most healthcare services for people are bought by clinical commissioning groups (CCG). Our local CCG is Northern, Eastern and Western Devon CCG.

We are responsible for commissioning £1.1bn of healthcare services on your behalf and for ensuring we can make the clinical commissioning group the best it can be.  We have involved patients, carers, clinicians and our staff to try to get it right.

Our local area falls under the eastern locality of the CCG, which is represented by four sub-localities. These are smaller populations within Eastern Devon where care is bought uniquely to ensure it meets the specific needs of that area.

Our sub locality is called ‘Wakley’ and is made up of a group of GPs and practice managers who meet monthly to discuss matters relating to healthcare in Axminster, Honiton, Ottery St Mary, Seaton and Sidmouth.

The Wakley sub locality has two co-chairs, Dr Simon Kerr, GP at Coleridge Medical Centre, Ottery St Mary and Dr Phil Taylor, GP at Axminster Surgery who represent the Wakley sub locality at the Eastern Locality meetings.

Lay member

The Wakley sub locality is now looking for a lay member who is passionate about health improvement and who will help us establish local priorities for healthcare from June 2013. The lay member will be someone who is able to take a broad view across the Wakley area.

If you would like to apply for this position or require further information please contact Nicola Webber on 01392 356129 or email:

Applicants will need to send a covering letter and CV, to, by Friday 31st May 2013.
