GP holds down two top PCT jobs

A practising Essex GP is also holding down two PCT chief executive posts at once.

Braintree GP Dr Paul Zollinger-Read, the chief executive of NHS North East Essex, has been named interim chief executive at NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney for the next couple of months.

A national recruitment campaign to appoint a permanent chief executive will begin soon.

Dr Zollinger-Read, a former NHS Modernisation Agency director of demand management, first took the reins of a PCT when he became chief executive of the Witham, Braintree and Halstead Care Trust in October 2002. He has been a GP since 1991.

Dr Zollinger-Read said: 'I remain fully committed to my role in North East Essex but am happy to help NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney in the interim period while it searches for a permanent new chief executive.'
