Dr Jonty Heaversedge, GP & Medical Director for Primary Care & Digital Transformation (London), NHS England
Jonty has been a GP in South East London since he qualified from the University of London nearly 20 years ago. He is passionate about general practice, the value it brings to the health and social care system, and the need to ensure that we have a high quality, sustainable primary care service at the heart of the new models of care currently emerging across London.
Jonty currently works as a sessional GP, having been a partner in a GP practice in Southwark until 4 years ago when he became Chair of the CCG. He became involved in the commissioning of local health services in Southwark 7 years ago, since that time he has become increasingly interested in the wider health and care system and transforming the services that local people receive in South East London.
Jonty has recently been appointed as the Medical Director for Primary Care and Digital Transformation in London. He sees information and technology as key enablers of system transformation and is excited about the opportunity this new role offers to support the development of integrated and continuously learning health and care systems across the Capital.
