Robert Whitehead is Board Member for Oadby and Wigston
From the Lake District originally, Robert has lived in the Market Harborough area for 20 years. He has been Practice Business manager at Bushloe Surgery in Wigston for the last 8.5 years
Robert was appointed following consultation with Oadby and Wigston practices.
Commenting on his appointment, Robert said, “My background of operational roles in a variety of professional services practices led me to be involved in the creation of ELR GP Federation Ltd. As a result I have retained a particular interest in the development of the Federation ever since. With the demands on primary care continuing to grow the need to work smarter not merely harder is ever present. I strongly believe that general practice can be more resilient through working together and the role the Federation will play in facilitating and where appropriate leading such closer working is a key to success. We all want to achieve provision of sustainable and outstanding healthcare in our communities. I look forward to supporting the Federation in assisting practices to achieve this vision.”
