Dr Geoff Jolliffe - Clinical Chair

Geoff Jolliffe

Geoff is a GP based in Barrow in Furness. Liverpool-born and educated, Geoff initially came to Morecambe Bay for training but never left, and is now a senior partner at Risedale GP Surgery.

Geoff has never regretted moving to Morecambe Bay, where he lives, got married, had children, and will die (hopefully with excellent care services around him, and even more hopefully, not just yet!).

He has had a portfolio career including training, occupational health, palliative care, commissioning and being a representative on local medical committees. Geoff was Interim Chair of Cumbria CCG before the boundary change, when he was elected as the Vice Clinical Chair of Morecambe Bay CCG in April 2017. Geoff has since been elected to the role of Clinical Chair for Morecambe Bay CCG, which he commenced in August 2018.

In this role Geoff’s focus will remain on improving the health of the whole population and reducing any health inequalities.
