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

Dr Zollinger-Read started in general practice in Braintree, Essex, in 1991 and in 1999 joined the National Patients’ Access Team and became the NHS Modernisation Agency’s director of demand management.

He became chief executive of the Witham, Braintree and Halstead Care Trust in October 2002.

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.

‘I look forward to working with the team to drive the organisation forward and achieve excellence in local health services for the local community.’
