Medical Director for Primary Care, NHS England
Dr Claire Fuller, a practising GP, has recently become the Medical Director for Primary Care for NHS England. She was previously the Chief Executive of the Surrey Heartlands Integrated Care System, having led the system since 2017, and had been Surrey Heartlands CCG accountable officer from 2022. Claire has been a practising GP since 1995, spending most of her career in Surrey, with a spell in Northumberland, where she worked in a single-handed rural practice. In November 2021 Claire was invited by NHS England Chief Executive Amanda Pritchard to lead a national piece of work looking at primary care within integrated care systems to identify what was working well and why. The output became known as the Fuller Stocktake and was co-signed by all 42 ICS Chief Executives who committed to the recommendations. Next steps for integrating primary care: the Fuller stocktake was published in May 2022.
