NHS Southwark CCG is delighted to announce the appointment of Andrew Nebel as a Lay member on its Governing Body.

Andrew takes up post in April 2017, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to the Governing Body from a varied career, most recently as a Non-executive director in the health sector, and as a director in the charitable sector.

His responsibilities at the CCG will include Chairing the Integrated Governance and Performance Committee and overseeing the quality and performance of commissioned services.

He has been appointed for a period of three years, alongside Dr Richard Gibbs and Robert Park, who have been re-appointed to their Lay member positions also until 2020. They will work alongside Joy Ellery, who is currently in post as the CCG's fourth Lay member.

Chair Dr Jonty Heaversedge said:  "I am delighted to welcome Andrew to the Governing Body and to welcome back Dr Richards Gibbs and Robert Park who successfully re-applied for their positions.

"From April, the CCG plans to take on full delegation for commissioning general practice in Southwark. We will benefit from increased Lay involvement and leadership than previously, and I am confident that our four Lay members will help us meet this challenge."

Andrew has lived in Rotherhithe since 1991. He began his career in marketing, working for well-known brands in food manufacturing, travel, and insurance before taking up a post on the main board at Barnardo's as UK Director of Marketing and Communications. There he had responsibility for all fundraising, retail & trading, marketing, advertising and communications activities.

Having retired from Barnardo's in 2009 after 12 years, he was appointed a Non-Executive Director of Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, from which he retires after nine years' service in March 2017.
