Ann Donkin – Chief Officer, NHS South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group

Ann has over 25 years of experience working in the public sector in both commissioning and provider services, and has held Director positions within healthcare and local and national government. Ann has a comprehensive knowledge and practical insight
into commissioning and strategic development within health and local government, strengthened through membership of the Faculty of Public Health as a Member by Distinction in 2011, and completing the Saïd Business School’s Advanced Leadership and
Management Development Programme in 2009.

Ann’s role as Interim Director of Integrated Commissioning for NHS Herefordshire & Herefordshire Council gave her a unique insight into the complexities and interplay between NHS commissioning and the needs and responsibilities of local government,
which she has transferred to the current challenges of effective, localised Clinical Commissioning in South Norfolk.
