After 16 years in mainstream NHS organisations, Tina Teague left NEW Devon CCG to take up the post of Chief Operating Officer for East Devon Health (EDH) in September 2016. EDH is a newly established federation in Devon with a membership of 13 practices, covering just over 120,000 patients. She is working closely with the Federation Chair to develop the federation into a well-established, viable organisation. Currently EDH’s main focus is to develop and deliver a range of projects on the use of technology to improve healthcare after a successful Estates and Technology Transformation Fund bid.
Tina’s experience includes senior commissioning in PCTs and CCGs. Tina has also worked in the acute sector, with previous operational roles in Cancer Services and Cardiology Services in local acute trusts. Before leaving the CCG, Tina led the transforming community services programme for the Eastern Locality in NEW Devon CCG.
