Dr Charles Alessi is a commissioning pioneer in Kingston, Surrey, one of the most vocal advocates of the Government's NHS reforms.
An increasingly prominent member of the NAPC, where he is tipped to become a future chair, Dr Alessi has relentlessly banged the drum for GP commissioning, and is always willing to offer a stimulating and challenging view on the NHS, whether it be in the pages of Pulse or in the less familiar territory of he Sun.
