Dr Joanne Watt, Clinical Chair

Dr Joanne Watt has been a GP at Great Oakley Medical Centre since 2005, and is now senior partner. During that time the practice has expanded from 2,500 patients to 11,300 patients and is still growing. She also works as a sexual health doctor providing confidential clinic services for non-registered patients via the department of Sexual Health.

Dr Watt was her practice lead during practice based commissioning. She then became practice delivery lead for the CCG, and in July 2012 was elected to the Governing Body as an executive GP leading on quality. In October 2015 she became interim Clinical Chair of the Governing Body, and became substantive Clinical Chair in April 2016.

Dr Watt has a focus on ensuring that the people of Corby receive equitable access to the high quality care that they need, and that their requirements are considered in future Northamptonshire plans.

Outside work she enjoys international travel, cooking, and getting away in her camper van to go walking with her husband and teenage children.
