The chairman of the Corby Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the GP-led group that plans and buys health care services for the people of Corby, has stepped down.
Dr Peter Wilczynski said he is quitting to be able to concentrate on his role as a GP.
Dr Wilczynski said: “My decision to resign from the role as chairman has not been easy.
“I would love to stay and work with the CCG and help support all the great work that we have started.
“But as a doctor, I am committed to the well-being of my patients and want to concentrate on this.
“I need to develop my own practice, manage my surgery and look at our future growth.”
He said he had enjoyed his time as chairman of the CCG, adding: “We have every right to be proud of what we have already accomplished and I will of course continue to give my full backing.”
CCG chief executive Carole Dehghani said: “Peter has made an outstanding contribution to Corby CCG. We wish him all the best and look forward to his continued involvement and support.”
An interim chairman will be unveiled shortly.
