|Dr Andrew Boorne (m)|
BSc MB BS (London 1997) DRCOG DTM&H MRCGP (Exam)
GMC No. 4441373
Dr Boorne trained at St Mary’s/Imperial College London and later spent time at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine studying for his Diploma in Tropical Medicine & Hygiene (DTM&H). He then worked extensively in some of the poorer parts of the world. For two years he was the senior doctor running in a rural hospital in Papua New Guinea. He joined the Alverton practice in February 2009 and for obvious reasons is the practice lead for travel and tropical medicine.
He is also one of the local GPs who also work for the Acute GP Service based at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro. This service helps GPs access the investigations, tests and some of the expertise of the hospital, quickly and ideally without all the inconvenience to the patient. In many cases this can avoid an unnecessary hospital admission.
Dr Boorne is also involved with the Peninsular Medical School, and has a role with the ‘Health for the Homeless’ service. He is a committed Christian and is a family man with 2 sons.
“I am proud to be a GP at Alverton practice, as I think we have developed a great team who all really try to do our best for our patients. I may not always have the best answer for your problem, but I will do my best to seek it out for you.”
