He will lead the finance, commercial and business analyst teams, with a focus on managing Vocare’s performance during its planned growth.

Mr Moffett began his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he qualified as a chartered accountant. He went on to hold senior positions within a number of well known-brands, including finance director at Ringtons Tea and operations director at Peter Vardy Ltd.

He said: “Vocare is one of the fastest-growing North East-headquartered businesses in an exciting sector that is going through change. The business has won a number of new contracts nationally by offering added value to the NHS.

“By continuously developing new services we are able to improve the quality of patient care in more commercially attractive ways for our NHS partners. I look forward to helping the company achieve its enormous potential as we continue to expand our services across the country.”

John Harrison, chief executive of the Vocare Group, added: “Carl will play a vital role within our senior management team, adding further commercial and financial knowledge to our business.

“Our focus is to deliver high-quality clinical healthcare to patients, ensuring they receive the right level of care, at the right time and in the right place for their needs. We aim to reduce the burden on A&E services by delivering urgent care to patients when they need it, freeing up emergency departments to deal with life-threatening cases.

“By working in close collaboration with the NHS and other healthcare providers, and by continuing to innovate, we are able to deliver an integrated and effective service to patients. We are looking forward to a bright future as we mobilise new services throughout 2015.”

The Vocare Group includes Northern Doctors Urgent Care, Staffordshire Doctors Urgent Care and Bath and North East Somerset Urgent Care. It provides GP out-of-hours, urgent care centre and NHS 111 services to patients in their communities.
