The Southern Hampshire Primary Care Alliance has a board of GP Directors all of whom work in our member practices.

They are voted in by their GP colleagues after a nomination and voting process. Each of the directors has special interests and a variety of the skills that they can bring to both their roles as Directors and to the organisation. In order to strike a balance between continuity and new energy, a process of re-election takes place every few years.


Dr. Kathryn Bannell, 


GP Partner, Grange Surgery, Petersfield

I work at the Grange Surgery in Petersfield and have been practicing there since 2003. My clinical interests are in pediatrics and child health and the surgery runs a drop-in clinic for teenagers from the area called Healthzone every Wednesday. I am also a GP trainer and enjoy assessment. I have been an examiner for the Royal College of General Practitioners for the past 11 years in the post-graduate GP exam. I became interested in locality and cross-organisational working in the national “vanguard” projects a few years ago and was one of the three GP leads for Hampshire in the early work. This has led on to my involvement with the South East Hants primary care Alliance which then formally joined with the Fareham and Gosport Alliance to become the South Hants Primary Care Alliance of which I have just become chair.


Dr. Dean Hatfull


GP Partner, Centre Practice, Fareham

I have been a GP Partner in Fareham since 2001 and have a keen interest in medical education. I have been a trainer since 2006 and locality group convenor. I trained initially in respiratory medicine and maintain an interest in General Practice as well as elderly care and cardiology.

I have been involved in all manifestations of the local unscheduled care system over the years as both a worker and managerially. After being elected onto the South Hants Primary Care Alliance board a large part of my portfolio surrounds the ongoing management of the new Integrated Primary Care Access Service which patients often recognise as GP Extended Access. 


Kerry Cooper

Chief Operating Officer, SHPCA

I’ve had a wide experience in providing operational management within many different areas of healthcare services. I consider the prime purpose of my job, to ensure that we provide a supportive and professional environment to allow all our clinical staff to do the best job that they can for our patients. I’m particularly keen on developing new ways of working to provide better access to quality services for our population, so I’m delighted to be working with the South Hampshire Primary Care Alliance at this exciting time of launching new services of care outside of normal GP practice hours.

Dawn Delahoy

I have been with SHPCA since December 2017 and have been involved with Primary care since 2012. Prior to working for the Alliance, I worked at Brockhurst surgery as a receptionist for 5 years

My aim is to make sure that the IPCAS Service runs efficiently and delivers the best possible service to patients.

I am a part-qualified ACCA accountant who has worked in Finance for over 35 Years, during this time I have developed and gained a broad skillset along the way. I started working for SHPCA in November 17 to control the finance for the company, I have set up Quickbooks and various spreadsheets to monitor the daily finance spend and as I have a good excel understanding I am also able to help my team when they need help.

Coming from a banking background, working with the NHS has been a steep learning curve but a road I’m grateful I’ve travelled!
