The Executive Team
I joined Our Health Partnership in early 2016. I used to be Director of Primary Care at Birmingham Cross City CCG. Before that I was Integration and Programme Manager on the Better Care Programme in Birmingham (covering Birmingham Cross City CCG, Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG, Birmingham South Central CCG and Birmingham City Council.)
I came to Our Health Partnership because I strongly believe that it’s the kind of organisation that offers an answer to the challenges of general practice, but also forms part of a wider health system solution.
All of my career has been spent in the NHS, with considerable time in Acute Foundation Trusts, Community Trust and CCGs. I have also worked as Deputy Finance Director at Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust and for Birmingham Children’s Hospital – I am a qualified accountant.
Outside work I help my husband run his catering company, based in Redditch. I have three children – two teenagers and one grown up. My life revolves around the family – I love holidays, own two greyhounds and am a keen supporter of West Bromwich Albion!
Hi all, my name is John Hood and currently look after The Oaks Medical Centre and Blackwood Health Cente as well as supporting KEN PCN in a Stregic and Service Design role. I’ve been in Geneal Practice for 6 years now, having spent 8 years previously in secondary care in variety of roles including Operational and Management roles in A&E, Cardiology, Regional Capacity and Complex Discharge. It is my hope I can utilise my experience of the different sectors, as well tap into my special interests in informatics and new technology to support the board and help OHP and its Practices to meet its strategic and business objectives.
Clair Huckerby – Chief Pharmacist
I joined Our Health Partnership as Consultant Pharmacist and lead for workforce in January 2020.
Prior to this I worked in Dudley as a Pharmaceutical Adviser and Consultant Pharmacist for 17 years leading and developing a large team of primary care clinical pharmacists who have won multiple national awards for delivering innovative care.
I qualified as a Pharmacist from Bradford University in 1996 and spent the first years post qualification working in hospital and community pharmacy, prior to starting a career in primary care in general practice in Birmingham. I have a passion for developing the role of clinical pharmacists and allied health professionals and over the last 23 years have pushed boundaries becoming one of the first pharmacist prescribers in the country in 2004 and the first primary care Consultant Pharmacist in the country in 2018.
I have a special interest in renal and cardiovascular medicine and have worked for NICE as an expert advisor authoring a number of clinical guidelines. I am a Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Birmingham School of Pharmacy and continue to work in a clinical role at a local general practice.I am looking forward to utilising my expertise to develop the roles of clinical and non-clinical OHP staff to build high quality multi-disciplinary teams.
Outside of work I spend time with my family and friends, usually involving taking part or competing in crazy running or swimming related sporting challenges.
