To help meet the challenges currently facing the NHS – and general practice in particular – Suffolk GP Federation has set out the following objectives for 2019/20:

  • Ensure all our services are rated at least ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission.
  • Launch GP Flex to enable GP’s, and later ANP’s, to work flexibly across any member practice.
  • Successfully launch the Suffolk Out of Hours service.
  • Work with our hospitals, CCG’s and Care UK to develop an Integrated Urgent Care service including Urgent Treatment Centres next to Emergency Departments.
  • Offer support for member practices forming Primary Care Networks.
  • Start a Felixstowe and Ipswich primary care mental health service. Successfully work with Alliance partners to complete the Most Capable Provider process for mental health.
  • Review the Fed Board structure.
  • Build a sustainable Fed organisation based on the values of quality and excellence for our patients and staff.

We have not yet set objectives for 2020/21.
