Clare Morris, former chief officer of NHS West Essex CCG will be joining Anne on the board of Active Essex. Clare has previous experience working alongside Active Essex as managing director of Anglia Ruskin Health Partners, working closely with Essex County Council and Active Essex in their most recent ‘digital schools campaign’ to encourage Essex pupils to use mobile apps to manage their health.

Clare commented on her appointment; “I have a passion for Essex and seeing local people thrive. I have spent the last 10 years of my career in the NHS trying to deal effectively and compassionately with the consequences of ill health and I have seen the benefits for individuals as well as communities when physical activity and sport become a part of everyday life.”
