CCG chair - GP at Collington and Ninfield Surgery, Bexhill-on-Sea
Dr David Warden has been a GP in Bexhill-on-Sea for 23 years having trained locally.
He worked as a clinical assistant in rheumatology for 10 years before his GP surgery commitments took priority and has a long history of involvement in GP commissioning, having been part of a Bexhill fund-holding group and subsequently part of a commissioning pilot for the town.
Dr Warden has a long-standing interest in the use of GP clinical systems and development of electronic care records to support patient care. In his role as the GP IT lead both locally and across Sussex, he has played an instrumental role in the development of DXS which will ultimately streamline local clinical guidelines pathways and referrals.
As the clinical lead for innovation, Dr Warden Chairs the CCG's innovation panel and works closely with the Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Sciences Network (KSS AHSN).
Dr Warden took over from Dr Roger Elias as chair of the CCG on 1 April 2016.
