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!
I am a qualified management accountant who worked for seven years in NHS commissioning in Warwickshire, most recently as Chief Finance Officer for NHS South Warwickshire CCG. Before that I spent sixteen years in the acute hospital sector, including time at Worcestershire Acute, Birmingham Women’s Hospital and University Hospital Birmingham.
I was involved in the launch of Warwickshire CCG and in its subsequent development into a fully functioning and successful clinical commissioning organisation. During that time I worked closely with the CCG’s clinical leadership team. In my career as an NHS finance professional I have supported the establishment of a satellite renal dialysis unit at Kidderminster, new community based models of care in South Warwickshire and the reconfiguration of stroke services across Coventry and Warwickshire.
I joined OHP because I believe that primary care is a massively important part of the NHS. I also feel that the pressures the NHS is now under, such as an aging population, greater number of patients with complex needs, and ongoing restrains on funding growth, are all forcing the kind of changes in how care is delivered that will place primary care at the heart of the delivery & management of out of hospital services for patients.
Outside work I enjoy running, reading and playing musical instruments including electric guitar and bass guitar.
Daniel Hill – Managing Partner
I am excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of the organization and working with my fellow Partners and PMs.
OHP has the foundations in place to create a future that is bright for patients and practices.
I am eager to be part of the next stage of the journey as we move to a more collaborative approach of working.
Since relocating to Birmingham in 2008 I have worked as a practice manager. I am currently the managing partner of BG Health.
My other roles include being on the LMC Managers forum, and I have also previously worked for the CQC as a specialist advisor and as a CCG ACE PM.
Prior to working in healthcare I worked in the logistics industry as a manager, consultant and director of a courier company.
My education includes a Batchelor of Science Degree in Geography from London Metropolitan University.
When not working I enjoy reading, sport and spending time with my family.
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.
