Guidance on collaborative GP alliances and federations and sharing staff

By | 5 November 2013

The GPs’ Committee has produced guidance for practices considering forming alliances or federations. It gives advice on what practices should explore before taking decisions, possible structural and legal models and provides case studies on the different organisations some GPs have already created.

Related to the guidance on alliances and federations, the GPs’ Committee has also produced advice on sharing staff, including secondments, joint employment, VAT considerations, alternative arrangements and managing change. Both guidance documents can be found on the GP practices pages of the BMA website.

CDD LMC recently endorsed moves towards federation.
