One of Norfolk's most experienced NHS chief executives has decided to resign.

Mark Taylor, the chief officer for North Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), confirmed last night to this newspaper that he has decided to stand down from his role.

It comes as the CCG, which is responsible for healthcare in the area, faces the task of delivering £9.2m in savings this year.

Mr Taylor, who held the role since the CCGs' inception in 2013, said: 'Essentially, after more than 30 years in NHS management I have decided that now is the right time for me to do something different career-wise.

'I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the CCG and it has been a pleasure working with such a committed and professional team over the past few years.

'On behalf of the CCG, I would like to thank Mark for all his hard work and wish him well in the future.'

Norfolk and Waveney's five CCGs this year need to save a combined total of more than £60m.

Mr Taylor previously worked as chief executive of the now defunct Broadland Primary Care Trust, deputy chief executive of the defunct Norfolk and Waveney Mental Healthcare NHS Trust, and also held roles with NHS Norfolk and Norfolk County Council.
