Legal Advice on GP Federation and Super Partnerships

GP practices are coming under increasing pressure to federate. If established properly, GP federations can help make the most of cooperation between GPs - providing opportunities for all, sharing best practice and protecting practices against competition from the private sector. However, it also carries the risk of creating uncertainty and dividing practices, whilst draining financial and other resources.

We have a great deal of experience advising GP practices on GP federations and partnerships, helping them to navigate in a positive way through complexities and opportunities that they are presented with.

Helping You to Identify and Manage the Risks with GP Federation

We will help you to identify the risks and issues in order to help you make the right decisions. In particular:

  • Why federate? What are you trying to achieve - is there an underlying problem?
  • How do you bind, but not shackle the members - and share risk and reward?
  • How to manage conflicts of interest and balance members' individual interests against the needs of the federation.
  • What social enterprise, charitable or community fabric can be woven into the overall structure?
  • Are you future-proofed against change?
