Get involved with your GP practice

Get involved in commissioning and with 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 clinician is. It’s not necessarily a senior partner. A mandated clinician is the member of the practice mandated to work on commissioning new services with NHS Kernow. You can find contact details for the practice manager on your GP practice’s website.

Local priorities in the coastal primary care network

The primary care network is part of a wider group called Carrick Commissioning Consortia. The consortia covers the coastal, Truro and Falmouth and Penryn primary care networks.

The Carrick Consortia has been an established group of GP practices for at least 20 years. The consortia have GP and practice manager representatives from each surgery and are committed to achieving:

  • the best use of local health resources
  • care as close to home as possible

The practices in the primary care network have commenced a programme to create stronger links between them. The aim is to create a more sustainable and resilient primary care network. The model they are developing is around closer integration with community nursing teams, social prescribing and coordinated frailty management.
