Simon Boycott

Simon has worked as a GP Practice Manager since June 2012, managing primary care services since before the introduction of clinical commissioning groups and witnessing much of the change to primary care that has brought us to this point. Simon worked towards the implementation of extended access services in the Woodsley and Holt Park Locality of Leeds from Autumn 2014, becoming the Head of Services for the Leeds West Primary Care Network from October 2016 to March 2018. In this role Simon oversaw the implementation, development and transformation of extended access services in West Leeds as they transitioned from locally commissioned services to services running under the General Practice Access Fund contract.

After working as part of the team to implement city-wide extended access for a short time, Simon is now company secretary and governance lead for the Confederation and is working with the leaders of primary care within the city to ensure that the confederation is configured to strengthen, develop and protect primary care services in Leeds.
