Dr Sunil Hindocha,
Clinical Director, Marina PCN.

Chair of Trustees


Sunil qualified in 1986 at Manchester University and worked in the North West before completing my vocational training for general practice and moving to Lincoln in 1991 as a GP principal. He is still a partner at the same practice in the Sincil Bank area and has a close connection to this area (and Lincolnshire as a county) having lived and worked here for more than 30 years.

Sunil has board level experience at the highest level, initially as a clinical advisor, which was more in line with a non-executive function, and then as Chief Executive Officer of the local commissioning group. This has given him over 15 year’s board level experience including roles as an Executive Board Member for the Out of Hours co-operative and Chair of the Practice Based Commissioning group. Alongside this, he was an integral founder member and subsequently Chair of a federation of GP practices in Lincolnshire called Optimus.


Other senior management positions have included Executive Member of the Lincolnshire Sustainability and Transformation Plan with Senior Responsible Officer roles in the Integrated Community Care and General Practice Forward View programs.

Sunil's current executive commitments include roles as the Clinical Director of the  Marina Primary Care Network in Lincoln and Chair of the Primary Care Network Alliance, which is a county wide group representing all Lincolnshire general practices.

His previous experience has provided and excellent understanding of the role of the board and the crucial relationship between the chair and executive team which drives forward the work of the organisation.

Sunil is passionate about building resilient, confident and compassionate communities, and shares the values and ambitions of the Foundation.
