Chair of NHS Norfolk and Waveney and Deputy Chair of the Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Partnership
Patricia is Chair of NHS Norfolk and Waveney and Deputy Chair of the Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Partnership. A former Secretary of State for Health (2005-2007), together with senior clinical and management colleagues, she has been instrumental in driving forward partnership working across the Norfolk and Waveney health and care system.
Patricia says: “As a resident of Norfolk, with long family connections here, I am delighted and honoured to be Chair of NHS Norfolk and Waveney. We have a hugely exciting opportunity to build on many years of partnership working and, particularly, the exceptional achievements of the last two years, including one of the most effective Covid vaccination programmes in the country. Now we need to step up our efforts to support our wonderful NHS and social care staff, bring waiting lists down, reduce health inequalities and help more people lead longer, healthier and happier lives.”
