Practice Manager      Geoff Dennis

      

I joined The Falmouth Health Centre Practice in November 2002 after managing two smaller Practices in Plymouth and later in Truro. Before that I worked in industry as Operations Manager for a national medical equipment company. I am married with two daughters and one grandson. When Iím not working I enjoy Cornish Pilot Gig rowing for St Gorran Rowing Club and I am a director of a Community Land Trust; a not for profit project involved in developing affordable homes and community spaces for local residents.
Healthcare is now evolving faster than ever and General Practice is at the forefront of these changes. More and more we are providing complex healthcare services locally and it is my job to ensure that we have the infrastructure and facilities for the Health Professionals to meet the needs of our patients.
One of the biggest changes recently has been the introduction of Clinical Commissioning Groups. This places responsibility for managing ever tighter NHS budgets on local GPs and groups of General Practices that work together to plan and design local health services in England. They do this by 'commissioning' or buying health and care services including: Planned hospital care; urgent and emergency and rehabilitation care. By commissioning directly we should have much greater say in developments and the addition of patient choice will help to spread demand and reduce waiting times.
I have a special interest in IT and its application in General Practice and we are constantly looking at new and innovative solutions to give Doctors and Nurses access to new resources that will benefit our patients.
