Dr Andy Morris

Consultant Anaesthetist

A Consultant specialising in anaesthetics and intensive care since 1999, my previous roles include Associate Medical Director, Group Director and Clinical Director at Barts Health and Whipps Cross and most recently five years as Chief Medical Officer at The Princess Alexandra Hospital, Harlow.   I have worked across East London and the East of England for over 30 years and during my career have been involved in many significant change programmes for clinical pathways, be that part of service development, reconfiguration or mergers.

I joined the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust as a locum Consultant Anaesthetist following retirement in July 2020, after having supported NHS England & NHS Improvement East of England as clinical lead during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A member of the East of England Clinical Senate Council since 2017, I am passionate about the delivery of high-quality safe services and the ever increasing need to do so in a difficult financial climate.   My belief is that this can only be achieved with strong clinical leadership and with solid engagement and collaborative working with non-clinical colleagues, patients and the public.

Out of hours, I have a small holding in West Suffolk with a menagerie of animals.
