New Chair elected for West London CCG

West London CCG is pleased to announce that Dr Andrew Steeden has been elected Chair of West London CCG.

West London CCG is pleased to announce that Dr Andrew Steeden has been elected Chair of West London CCG. In addition, Dr Ali Al-Rufaie and Dr Ed Farrell were elected on to the Governing Body in January.

Dr Steeden is a GP at The Surgery, Stanhope Mews West, and has been a GP in the area since 2000. Since joining the Governing Body, he has been involved in commissioning Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, with particular focus on quality and performance. He also supports the development of integrated care, and chairs the West London CCG Finance and Activity Committee.

In 2018, Dr Fiona Butler announced that she would be stepping down from her Governing Body role.  Following the election to the Governing Body, the Electoral Reform Services conducted the election for the role of Chair, and we can confirm that Dr Steeden will start the role with immediate effect.

Mark Easton, Accountable Officer for North West London Collaboration of CCGs, said: “I would like to congratulate Dr Steeden on his election. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience at an exciting and challenging time for the NHS when we are looking to deliver the ambitious agenda laid out in the recently published NHS Long Term Plan of a truly integrated care system.”

The election was conducted by the Electoral Reform Services. Elected members are drawn from across West London CCG, and are entrusted with commissioning safe and effective services to deliver the best outcomes for patients. 

Dr Andrew Steeden, Chair of West London CCG, added: “We would like to pay special thanks to Dr Fiona Butler, who was elected Chair in 2013, shortly after the CCG was established.  Her leadership of the CCG, as well as the North West London CCGs’ mental health programme, and her guidance and local knowledge in steering West London CCG’s response to the Grenfell Tower fire have been invaluable.”
