Alessandro Dini is the new director of the general medicine department of the North West Tuscany Usl. He will take office on 1 July for three years. The appointment resolution was signed a few days ago by Maria Letizia Casani, general director of the Northwest ASL.
Alessandro Dini has been an affiliated general practitioner since 1986, first in the municipality of Camaiore and then, since 1989, in the municipality of Castelnuovo Garfagnana. He is currently the representative of the department of general medicine in the Serchio Valley district, coordinator of the Aft Garfagnana and president of the medical cooperative Igea Salus, operating in the districts of Lucca and the Serchio Valley.
“I welcome the appointment as director of the general medicine department of our Ausl – declares Dini – and I thank the general director, Dr. Maria Letizia Casani, for this important task that he has conferred on me and all the fellow coordinators for the trust and support they have shown me in recent months. Important challenges await us after these long months of pandemic, which we will have to face as general medicine together with the local structures, hospitals and the management of our company, with a strong spirit of collaboration in the primary interest of our patients “.
“Surely in the coming months we will have to organize the new vaccinations in a structural way – continues the new director – to resume the path of taking charge of chronic diseases, expand home care with a view to de-hospitalization of some pathologies and the most fragile subjects, working in harmony and spirit of collaboration with the company hospitals “.
The director of the department of general medicine supports the company management in the definition of strategic objectives and participates in the company planning and in the definition of the paths concerning the management of chronicity and continuity of hospital-territory care, maintaining a direct relationship with the Aft coordinators and, through them, with the family doctors of the five territorial areas in which the North West Tuscany Ausl is articulated.
He is appointed by the general manager among a triad of candidates identified through an electoral consultation among the coordinators of Aft (the functional territorial aggregations, which group in a single coordination all the family doctors who work in a single area of 30 thousand inhabitants).
