Local priorities

The Truro 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 two Truro practices are Primary Care Home sites (Three Spires and Lander Medical Centre). Their main focus is around developing a social prescribing model for their patients.

GP surgeries in this locality

The locality comprises of three practices and their approximately 39,000 patients. The GP Lead for Truro GP locality is Dr Andy May.

You can get involved in commissioning and a Patient Participation Group (PPG) by talking to the Practice Manager at your GP surgery.

You can also contact the Practice Manager to find out who the mandated GP is (it’s not necessarily one of the senior partners). A mandated GP is the member of the practice mandated to work on commissioning new services with NHS Kernow. As you can see on this page, each surgery has their own website, where you can find contact details for the Practice Manager. 

The NHS.uk page for each surgery show the facilities available, such as induction loops, wheelchair access and parking.
