Clinical Leadership

Kingfisher PCN has strong clinical representation with an elected Lead GP from each member practice representing their practice and forming the core membership of the Kingfisher PCN Board. The Kingfisher PCN Board is the key decision maker in terms of driving meaningful change. Kingfisher PCN has a wealth of overarching clinical leadership; provided by 2 Clinical Directors – Dr Rich Burling and Dr Jonathan Wells.

A Message from our Clinical Director

"Party pants on hold"

"I just wanted to use this month's blog to thank each and everyone of our team, PCN and Practice staff, for your amazing efforts during this challenging time in this unprecendented pandemic. You have all maintained an incredible ressilience ensuring always that our patients safety is our first priority and that without a sniff of a morale boosting lockdown party! Our politicians should observe and take note...

As Clinical Director, it has been heartening for me to see how the PCN and Practice staff can work together so well giving huge encouragement to future necessary collaboration.

Our celebration are rightly on hold but rest assured, we'll party better than the politicians when it's all over.


Kingfisher PCN Board membership also includes Practice Managers and PCN Management. The following diagram is a visual interpretation of governance and delivery with monthly PCN Board, weekly PCN Management Team and the Additional Roles Team as the delivery mechanism by which new services are directly delivered.
