Dr Hamish Stedman
Hamish is a product of St Andrews and Victoria Universities, qualifying in 1978. He has worked in most of Salford’s hospitals and has just retired after thirty five years as a General Practitioner in Swinton. He continues as a part time medical officer at St Ann’s Hospice in Little Hulton.
He recently stepped down from the Chair roles of Salford CCG and the Association of Greater Manchester CCGs. He had been in post since the inception of both bodies. In the Greater Manchester role he helped steer the combined CCGs towards the reconfiguration of acute sector services under the Healthier Together project and was a co signatory to the health and social care powers devolved to Greater Manchester.
Latterly he was a member of the Greater Manchester Reform Board, a forum that is tasked with aligning public services across Greater Manchester to improve population health. This and improving quality of care remain his two passions. He describes the collaborative work within Salford and the developing Integrated Care Organisation as the perfect way to demonstrate how this can be done.
