NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group
Dr Simon Stockill grew up in Yorkshire, before studying medicine at Imperial College London and University College London. After qualifying as a GP he worked as a lecturer in general practice at Imperial College, London, served on the Board of Westminster Primary Care Trust, and was an elected member of Westminster City Council.
He has a post-graduate degree in public health from the University of York, was Clinical Chair of NHS Leeds Primary Care Trust before becoming Medical Director of NHS Leeds West Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
He was a founder of the Leeds Institute of Quality Healthcare and takes a specialist interest in quality improvement and clinical leadership.
Simon spent over 10 years as a GP in Leeds. In April 2016 he moved to a new practice near Whitby in order to remove any conflicts of interest, as the CCG took over responsibility for commissioning primary care medical services.
Outside medicine he is a Trustee of the National Youth Theatre and enjoys running and walking on the beaches and moors of Yorkshire.
