Dr Deb Gompertz

Deputy Honorary Secretary

Deb is a Complex Care GP and Clinical Lead for Complex Care in South Somerset. She helped set up their cross-organisational neighbourhood team from a Vanguard project 7 years ago. Prior to this she worked as a GP partner for 16 years and also worked in A@E as an Acute Care GP.

Care of the older population, with shared decision making and person centred care is her passion, whilst supporting upcoming professionals from all areas to show them the joy in this work.

As part of the NHS England Clinical Entrepreneur Programme she has developed skills to spread innovation and is particularly interested in appropriate person centred prescribing, and working together with adult social care.
