We are pleased to announce that Dr Geeta Iyer will be taking up the role of Medical Director for the GP Collaborative Board (GPCB) from 1 April 2022.
Geeta has been working closely with the GP Collaborative Board since its inception in her role as Clinical Lead for Primary Care Development for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) CCG and alongside her role as a GP at Gloucester Road Medical Centre. Geeta will continue in both these roles alongside her new GPCB position, which will mean she is uniquely placed to strengthen the GPCB’s working relationships with both the wider system and BNSSG practices.
Geeta will be working for the GPCB one day a week. Please join us in giving her a warm welcome to her new GP Collaborative Board role over the coming weeks and months.
Speaking about her appointment, Geeta said:
I’m really looking forward to working on behalf of the GP Collaborative Board to strengthen the relationships between general practice providers and our colleagues across the system. I’ll be working closely with the Chair, Vice-Chair and Board members to make sure the board truly understands and represents the views of our constituent practices. The GPCB has already established itself as the representative body for general practice in our developing Integrated Care System and we can build on this solid foundation over the coming years.
Geeta’s initial priorities will be to coordinate general practice input to system planning for next year, offer clinical leadership for key areas of work in our ICB and support the role of the GP Collaborative Board in implementing the BNSSG Primary Care Strategy.
