The GP Care Group and The Jubilee Street Practice are delighted to announce a new partnership from 1 October 2022.
The Jubilee Street Practice enters an arrangement to protect its long-term future as an independent practice by joining the GP Care Group. It hopes to maximize opportunities of scale within an organization that holds a growing track record of understanding and valuing primary care.
Under the new arrangement the Jubilee Street partners retain responsibility, and have managerial freedom, for running the practice and are joined by Dr Joe Hall, Vice Chair of the Care Group, who has a non-operational role representing the Care Group’s interests. Joint hopes for the future of the practice include moving towards arrangements to become a company limited by shares, and working together to harness and scale both learning, and new, sustainable models for the delivery of care.
The Care Group Joint Chief Executive, Chris Banks, said: “We were delighted to be approached for support by the Partners at Jubilee Street. The Practice has a well-deserved reputation for innovation and excellence, and the Care Group is keen to work alongside them to develop new models of best practice both in general practice and across the health and care system. As the GP Federation for Tower Hamlets we are determined to support Jubilee Street, Island Health and other Tower Hamlets practices to thrive and grow.”
The Jubilee Street partners said “Moving towards new organizational models that spread risk whilst still allowing us opportunities to innovate and test different models of general practice is something we have been considering for several years. We feel committed to playing our part in designing the future models of general practice, and partnering with the GPCG felt like the best choice for our practice. We share a similar ethos and appetite for innovation, and feel that this decision will open opportunities for our staff, our patients, and general practice more broadly.”
