The Executive Board

The DHC Board has years of experience of working within the NHS at executive level and includes DHC Federation GPs who have first-hand experience of the challenges faced by patients.

Together they work to maintain the highest standards across all DHC services.

Dr Jonathan Richards

Chairman
As Chairman I am a member on the DHC Board of Directors and provide leadership to the organisation’s officers and executives. In our organisation I ensure that the duties to shareholders are being fulfilled by Directors’ actions by acting as a link between the Board and upper management. I also have an operational role mirroring the Chief Executive’s role but without specific line management responsibilities.

Michael Arnaud

Chief Executive Officer
I work with the Chair, other Directors of DHC and I lead the management team to ensure our services are high quality and efficient. I look after the financial performance of DHC and our contracts with the NHS and partner organisations. I work with the Board to set the strategic direction of the organisation and aim to continuously develop and grow DHC.

Dr Stewart Tomlinson

Medical Director
I am responsible for leading medical, nursing and therapy teams within DHC and ensuring that governance, quality, productivity and operational decisions relevant to clinical practice meet the highest standards. I share responsibility with the Board to lead service transformation and represent patients at the highest level within the organisation.

Dr Andre Beattie

Community Services
My roles involve the coordination and leadership of the Community Medical Team (CMT) of GP's and nurses caring for chronically ill and elderly housebound patients across the Dorking locality, a service that provides extended medical care for patients within their own homes. In addition, my role of clinical research lead involves the promotion, coordination and running of clinical studies for research purposes across the Dorking practices.

Dr Vishal Sagar

Marketing & Education
I am responsible for the strategic direction of DHC’s communications and marketing to various stakeholders across a range of channels. I create and oversee a programme of educational events for GPs which provide opportunities for general practice audiences to learn from specialist clinicians within the DHC team.

Ronnie Godfrey

I am responsible for the Primary Care Network of South Tandridge which is made up of Oxted Health Centre and Lingfield Surgery. I work with my colleagues on the Board of DHC to establish more integrated ways of working across our practices that bring great benefits to patients. I am passionate about improving patient care and developing collaborations that provide patients with access to a wide range of new and improved services.

Dr Liesel Moffett

Director of Primary Care, Dorking
I have been a GP in Dorking since 2008 where practices have a long history of working together. As Director of Primary Care, I play a central role in cementing that relationship and ensuring that we continue to take a joined-up approach as we introduce new initiatives. It is exciting to see the potential to improve patient care by working together and sharing ideas and best practice.
