Falmouth and Penryn Integrated Care Forum (FPICF)

Since 2019 the four GP practices in Falmouth and Penryn have been meeting regularly and collaborating on projects.  We work together as a Primary Care Network to build on existing services and to improve provision of healthcare for our community.

The four practices run a quarterly ‘Falmouth and Penryn Integrated Care Forum (FPICF)’ in which we can discuss some of the wider issues affecting health in Falmouth, Penryn and the surrounding areas.  There will be an opportunity to discuss some of the projects that the PCN is working on which currently include a new mental health hub and increasing support of our care homes.  We invite other local stakeholders to attend the meeting such as councillors, representatives from the voluntary sector and Cornwall Partnership Foundation Trust.  Incorporated into these new forums are break-out sessions with individual practice representatives so that you can continue to have an opportunity to share your experiences and ideas for improvement of your own surgeries.

‚ÄčIf you would like to be a member of the Falmouth and Penryn Integrated Care Forum please email our PCN Care Coordinator with your name, contact details, occupation, age and surgery name.  If you know of any other people in the community that may be interested in joining, please feel free to share this letter with them and ask them to contact Poppy.  In order to send out the online meeting invitations we may need to share your email address with other attendees.  Please confirm if you are happy for us to do this.
