Dr George Solomon - Non-Executive Director
George is a retired GP who worked in general practice for thirty-one years. He graduated from Glasgow University in 1978 and worked in Junior Doctor posts in Glasgow and Somerset.
He completed his GP training in Taunton and then moved to a GP Partnership in Tipton in 1985. His practice population of around 13,000 were made up of Sandwell and Dudley residents, which resulted in gaining experience in cross border working and forging relationships with colleagues in the local systems.
He has served as a Non-Executive Director of Sandwell Health Authority, a member of Sandwell PCT Professional Executive Committee and then as a GP member of Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG Governing Body with a lead for commissioning, where he championed the voice of local people and the need for joined up health and care services.
Over the span of his career he has been committed to ensuring patients receive integrated care and led initiatives to integrate practice and community nursing services within the practice, led the development of a Case Management Team to co-ordinate services for patients with complex needs and a joint Health & Social Care Team with agreed pooled resources.
George is looking forward to serving the people of Dudley and to helping to establish integrated care at scale.
