Frances O’Callaghan joining as new Accountable Officer for  North Central London CCGs

The five North Central London Clinical Commissioning Groups (NCL CCGs) have today (Thursday 9 January) announced the appointment of Frances O’Callaghan as their Accountable Officer.

Frances joins in February 2020 and will lead the formation of one North Central London CCG in April 2020, bringing together Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington CCGs. Frances takes over the role from Helen Pettersen.

Frances has worked in the NHS for over 20 years leading clinical services and in strategy roles, most recently as Director of Strategic Implementation and Partnerships at Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. She has been responsible for estates, communications and other corporate services at Board level, in addition to three years as a Director within the corporate finance team at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Helen Pettersen departs at the end of February 2020. Helen has steered our five CCGs superbly through a period of complex change and financial challenge, and has made a huge contribution to our collective successes.
