Coastal cluster GP locality
The coastal cluster GP locality stretches from Carnon Downs over to St Agnes on the North coast.
The locality has approximately 19,000 patients and is rural in character yet it's relatively close to the main acute hospital in Truro. The locality has the oldest over-65s population in the county. For more information, go to the locality's GP surgeries page.
The GP Lead for Coastal Cluster GP locality is Dr Rob White.
There are no community hospitals in this locality.
The Coastal Cluster locality is part of a wider group called Carrick Commissioning Consortia. The Consortia covers the Coastal Cluster, Truro and Falmouth and Penryn.
The Carrick Consortia has been an established group of GP practices for at least 20 years and comprises GP and practice manager representatives from each surgery. This consortia is committed to achieving the best use of local health resources and achieving as much care as possible as near to the patient’s home as possible.
The three practices have commenced a programme to create stronger links between all of them. The ‘working at scale’ is aimed to creating a more sustainable and resilient primary care. The model they are developing is around closer integration with community nursing teams, including social prescribing and co-ordinated frailty management.
