Service delivery and business development projects

We have delivered a number of Service delivery and business development projects during 2018/19 

Clinical Pharmacists in General Practice 

The Federation worked with a number of practices to secure agreement from the NHS England “Clinical Pharmacists in General Practice” scheme to provide groups of practices with the provision of clinical pharmacists to work across the practices in patient-facing roles. 

Two hubs have been established across seven practices, where each hub shares a clinical pharmacist provided by a specialist organisation who is responsible for their recruitment and ongoing management. 

Community Based Services 

The Federation continued to provide public health community based services (Health Checks, contraception and alcohol reduction) in line with its three year contract with Leicestershire County Council. These services have been provided through sub-contracting arrangements with a range of the Federation’s member practices. 

H Pylori breath test 

The Federation secured a contract with the Provider Company to deliver the H-Pylori breath test service in ELR. The majority of our practices have agreed to provide this on a sub-contract basis. 


The Federation co-ordintated the implementation of a contract for INRstar anticoagulation management software on behalf of member practices.
