3 August 2021
Congratulations to Wojciech Karwatowski who has been elected as the new chair of the Clinical Council for Eye Health Commissioning (CCEHC) following a vote by the members of the Clinical Council. Wojciech is a consultant ophthalmologist at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, Chair of the Local Eye Health Network for Leicestershire and Lincolnshire and is also a member of The Royal College of Ophthalmologist’s Professional Standards Committee.
The RCOphth is a member of the CCEHC, which is an independent advisory body providing evidence-based national clinical leadership, advice and guidance to policy makers in health, social care and public health, and those commissioning and providing eye health services in England.
Speaking about his appointment, Wojciech Karwatowski said,
‘The CCEHC’s unique position in encompassing all the key professional, industry and third sector groups, supported by its relationship with the NHS, has allowed it to function highly effectively both prior to and during the pandemic. Its output of guidelines, quality structures and information has hugely enriched the discussion within, and actions by, the eye care sector and the wider NHS.
My priority is to build on partnerships and mutual understanding between members, and maintain a focus on delivering efficient, effective and high-quality modern patient care now and into the future.’
