James Watkins

James is the Chief Operating Officer for ELR GP Federation.

James started his career in healthcare nearly 25 years ago when he joined the NHS Graduate Management Training scheme based at Leicester General Hospital.  Since then I have worked across the country in a number of operational, strategic and development roles within the NHS, Charity and Social Enterprise healthcare sectors.

James recognises this is a challenging time to be working within the NHS to ensure that we deliver high quality healthcare to the people that use our services.  He believes it is very exciting that all practices in ELR have agreed to come together to create a new GP Federation to help rise to that challenge.  His commitment is to work with all Federation members to determine how the Federation can effectively engage with practices and add value to the delivery of primary care – recognising the local variations across ELR.
