A Norfolk doctor has been appointed to head up a committee to provide clinical advice to the NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney primary care trust.
Dr Jamie Wyllie, a GP at the Falkland Surgery in Bradwell, Great Yarmouth, will be the chairman of the new clinical executive committee (CEC).
The committee's fortnightly meetings will offer clinical input on decisions being considered by the health body.
The CEC includes local GPs and members of NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney.
Dr Wyllie, who will chair the committee initially for six months, said: "This new committee is bringing practice-based and clinical commissioners right into the heart of NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney (the primary care trust) and its decision-making processes."
Dr Wyllie qualified as a doctor in 1997 after studying at Edinburgh University.
He completed his training as a GP in 2001 and has worked at the Falkland Surgery ever since.
He will sit on the committee alongside clinical members Dr Ian Gibson, from the Coastal Villages Practice, Dr John Stammers from Southwold Surgery and Dr Martin Vallis of Rosedale Surgery, Carlton Colville, as well as 10 members of the trust's executive team.
