Information and resources for GPs, practices and LMCs on the four main models of collaborative working in general practice
GPC has been looking at how practices can work together to better manage their workload and in so doing, facilitate general practice in remaining sustainable.
A federation is based on a group of practices working together within their local area, in some sort of collective legal or organisational entity.
Hubs are a way of managing workload across a number of practices and their respective patient lists, enabling practices to work together to organise the delivery of same-day appointments.
A new type of integrated provider that could potentially combine the planning, budgets and delivery of primary and community care services.
A super-partnership is formed by a number of individual practices merging into a single businesses unit, covering multiple sites across a large geographical area.
This guidance summarises some of the key potential opportunities for general practice from the Forward View, and provides a steer for LMCs and practices on maximising its potential to deliver change locally.
GPs from across the country gathered at BMA House in February 2017 to attend a special GPC / LMC organised 'Working together to sustain general practice' conference.
