Medical Director (Primary Care) - Dr David Geddes
David Geddes David Geddes qualified as a doctor in 1987 from the Royal London Hospital Medical College. He moved to Yorkshire to train as a GP on the York vocational training scheme in 1989 and became a GP principal in 1993. He lives in York with his wife and three children.
David has a special interest in community psychiatry, and for several years worked as a clinical assistant with one of the community mental health teams. He is a trustee for a local mental health charity supporting rehabilitation of patients with chronic mental health problems.
David joined the Selby and York Primary Care Trust initially as a member of the Professional Executive Committee, before being appointed as the Medical Director for Primary Care in May 2004. He now combines his role as a GP in York city centre, three days a week, with his role as Medical Director for Primary Care with NHS North Yorkshire and York.

Is This What The Nhs Has Come To (from York Press), 10 June 2006 [cached]
Dr David Geddes, medical director of the Selby and York Primary Care Trust, insists that patients who do not score 70 on the scale will, where appropriate, be referred for intermediate-level medical care.
This, he says, could involve a home assessment of their needs and a range of options including acupuncture, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
The point is, he insists, that patients can very well be treated appropriately in a range of ways that fall short of a knee or hip replacement, and that the primary care trust has a duty to use its money carefully."We recognise that there is a cohort of patients who actually we can manage with more conservative measures," he says.
There are a number of reasons for this, Dr Geddes says.
Dr Geddes says part of the aim of the new system is to ensure that those who get surgery are those who really need it."Surgical procedures have to be focussed on those most at need," he says.But he concedes that the financial problems faced by the primary care trust have "brought into focus" the need to get value for money."We want to provide a service that is responsive to people's needs, clinically effective and within the resources available to us," he says.
