GP Federation Toolkit

The GP Federation toolkit provides advice and support to enable practices to develop your GP Federation Business Plan.

The toolkit seeks to draw on the practical experience of existing primary care organisations or Federations, to inform local clinicians and managers seeking to establish a Federation in their own area.

Where appropriate, research evidence is also used to inform the advice given, and there is a strong focus on signposting practical resources sourced a wide range of management, academic, national and international experts.

The content is directly linked to the sections of the Business Plan template, which you are required to complete.

When completed by you it will be a mixture of the practical plans of who you wish to work with, your vision and the objectives of the organisation.

To aid you in completing this, this support toolkit includes prompts, guides, and tips of what elements need to be included along with case examples.
