Dr Adrian Jacobs – Chair

Adrian Jacobs spent 20 years as a General Practitioner followed by 12 years’ experience as a Director of Primary Care for South and West Devon Health Authority and Torbay Care Trust.

He has wide experience in working with practices and practitioners in difficulty and has worked as Medical Director in Leicester, Devon and in the private sector. Adrian also works for NHS Employers as a member of their Care GP Contract Negotiating Team and leads Quality and Outcomes Framework negotiations.

In 2013 Adrian became Medical Director for Serco Health to ensure their readiness for revalidation and also became Medical Director of The Huntercombe Group.

Adrian has recently retired but hopes that his experience of Commissioning Third Sector Services for the NHS will help Devon in Sight respond to commissioning opportunities.
