Bradford City CCG welcomes new governing body member

NHS Bradford City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has welcomed the appointment of a secondary care consultant to its governing body.

Peter Corry, a paediatrician and expert on rare genetic conditions in childhood, brings a wealth of experience and local health knowledge to the governing body, having worked at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust for 25 years.

Peter retired from the Trust last year after a career in which he led on the development of services for disabled children in Bradford, through the Child Development Centre. He is also a key figure in the Born in Bradford research programme and has been closely involved in raising awareness of genetic inheritance issues as part of the district’s infant mortality work.

Originally from Northern Ireland, Peter graduated in medicine from Queen’s University in Belfast, and came to Yorkshire to take up a consultant’s role at Bradford Children’s Hospital in 1986.

Peter said: "I am very pleased to be joining the enthusiastic CCG team, working together to improve health services for the people of Bradford City. While I already know a lot about the services for children, I am keen to learn more about the needs of other sections of the community."

Dr Akram Khan, clinical chair of Bradford City CCG, said: “I’m delighted to have Peter on board. He brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the CCG which will add to our understanding of the complex health needs of many patients in the City area – and help us to commission services which can really make a difference to people’s lives.”
