CHAIRMAN

Dr Tim Morton qualified at the Westminster Hospital Medical School (now sadly part of Imperial College) in 1983 and undertook VTS training in Great Yarmouth when the James Paget Hospital was relatively new. He left to work in Australia and New Zealand for 3 years before returning and eventually joining Beccles Medical Centre as a partner in 1990.

The practice has grown to be one of the largest practices in the East of England with over 20,000 patients and an increasing number of partners. He was one of the original fund-holders in the early 1990’s and over the years been closely involved in several commissioning initiatives. He holds an honorary contract with East of England Ambulance Trust as a pre-hospital trauma doctor and is a member of Norfolk Accident Rescue Service with a special interest in Major Incident Management (especially flu pandemics!). He uses these skills as the Senior Racecourse Medical Officer at Great Yarmouth racecourse each flat racing season treating the likes of Frankie Dettori et al.

Maintaining a work-life balance he finds relaxation by engaging in endurance sport especially triathlons and is a member of Tri-Anglia triathlon club and Bungay Black Dog Running Club. He is often confused with his identical twin brother Dr Nick Morton (Bowthorpe/Trinity St Surgeries, Norwich and East of England Ambulance Trust Associate Medical Director).

As Chair his aim is similar to the motto of the Los Angeles Police Academy “To Protect and to Serve” primary care in Norfolk and Waveney in these challenging times.
