The GPC is continuing actively to engage in the topic of GP networks (also known as GP federations).
As a part of that programme of activity, the GPC recently launched guidance covering the different legal forms that GP networks can adopt. The guidance is available on the BMA website.
Additional guidance, including work covering key steps to setting up a GP network, is currently being developed and will be launched soon.
