Dr. Jim O’Donnell, GP & Locality Lead, East Berkshire CCG
Dr. O’Donnell is a GP Partner at Farnham Road Practice in Slough and the Locality Lead for Slough within East Berkshire CCG. A former chair of Slough CCG and an active participant and advocate of the work being undertaken as part of the Frimley Health & Care ICS, he says, “Leading my G.P. colleagues and practices into and through Clinical Commissioning is the greatest privilege. I am determined to make the best contribution I can to the system to improve patient outcomes. How do we all become system-focused, leaving our organisation blinkers and shackles behind, putting patients first, and ensuring everyone ‘boards the bus’?”
Dr. O’Donnell qualified at the National University of Ireland, Galway in June 1978 and completed his General Practice training in Portsmouth in 1982.
He worked in tertiary referral medicine in Baghdad, Iraq from 1984 to 1988 followed by a cardiology research post in the UK at Wexham Park Hospital involving the first use of thrombolysis in acute myocardial infarction. This led to a career in the pharmaceutical industry involving novel treatments for ischaemic heart disease.
He continued as a General Practitioner, and was involved in the development of new medicines up to 1998. He then returned to full time general practice in Slough and had a key interest in clinical governance and education in primary care. From 2006 he was involved in commissioning and in 2007 became the Slough Locality Lead.
In 2008 he became Chairman of the Clinical Executive Committee at Berkshire East PCT. Dr. O’Donnell is also a member of the NHS Commissioning Board “Sounding Board” and has been involved in drawing up plans for the Commissioning Assembly.
