Dr Lucy Chiddick’s Fellowship focus is on improving the commissioning of inclusion health services. She is a Clinical Lead for Vulnerable Groups at Hull CCG, and is part of Hull’s Homeless Task Force – set up at the start of the Covid 19 pandemic to support and oversee the Health response to the emergency. She has also been asked to take on this Inclusion Health role across the whole of Humber as part of the ICS. 

Lucy also works at Leeds CCG as Clinical Lead for Health Inequalities – her role includes vulnerable groups and inclusion health commissioning. She sits on the CCG strategic group for Health Inequalities where they have developed a CCG strategy which underpins commissioning intent and decisions with a targeted response to vulnerable and inclusion health groups. She also sits on the RCGP Standing group for Health Inequalities. 

Lucy is currently a GP in Inclusion Health and Substance Misuse at Bevan Healthcare, working in Leeds and Hull. She has a Master’s in Public Health, which focussed on homelessness and mental health; and she is a Committee Member for the NICE Rough Sleepers Guideline development committee (role – commissioning). 

Lucy has worked with vulnerable groups and in the field of inclusion and addiction health for around 20 years. In 2004 she co-founded a charity working with street sex workers (Joanna Project Leeds) and later worked with a similar project in Hull (The Lighthouse Project) commissioning research funded by Lankelly Chase.
