Hands-on support to develop federations

PCC were secured to work in partnership with Capita to support the establishment of two/ three GP federations within a very short timescale in order to respond to the opportunities presented under a successful Prime Ministers Challenge Fund Wave 1 bid.  Working closely with the CCG, we were able to support locality wide engagement, identify the leaders and support them to drive forward the early registration of a legal entities.  Underpinning the legal aspects of work needed, PCC supported the emerging organisations to maintain a clear vision, to support ongoing engagement and information with potential shareholders, identify potential partner providers and supported the development of robust business planning, including financial flows and viability, communication strategy and moving forward to board election.  This consultancy required a good knowledge of primary care, GP federations, the emerging new care models and commissioning landscape, project management, marketing and a detailed understanding of the complexities of setting up a new legal entity.
