Dr. Jonathan Lubin

Chair North Locality and Governing Body Member

NHS Barnet CCG

 

Dr. Jonathan Lubin has been a GP in Barnet for 23 years and currently practices from a small partnership based in Whetstone. As well as seeing patients, he is responsible for teaching 5th year medical students and, prior to his election onto the Board of the Barnet Clinical Commissioning Group, also taught 4th year students. In addition, Dr. Lubin carries out Occupational Health work.

Dr. Lubin was keen to get involved with the CCG as he has an interest in Elderly Frail care through his practice's work in care homes, which has led him to have a strong desire to improve the care of this vulnerable group. Within the CCG his responsibilities are in Elderly Frail Care, Quality, Innovation, Prevention and Productivity programmes (QIPP), and the implementation of the new Primary Care strategy for Barnet. With medicine being a rapidly changing field, Dr. Lubin believes that being a member of the CCG is an opportunity for GPs to lead on the changes that are taking place and to try to ensure that the best and most affordable care is available for Barnet patients.

Dr. Lubin hopes the CCG will enable changes that will allow patients to receive high quality care near to their homes, to develop a framework to support elderly frail patients in their homes for as long as possible, and then in care homes. Dr. Lubin says, "I would like to see primary care in Barnet developing to support the changing needs of patients, develop and adopt the changing technological support and new ways of working that can allow patients to obtain care to meet their needs in the future."
