Waltham Forest Federated GP Network (FedNet) was formed in July 2014, after GPs in Waltham Forest made the decision to ‘federate’ (work together more closely and share resources) so they could provide more services for local people. Although people stay registered with their own GP practice, they can access enhanced services – such as weekend and evening GP appointments, through other GP practices who are also part of FedNet.
The remit of the federation is to share responsibility for delivering high quality, patient-focussed services for the local community as an organisational entity, working together within the local health economy.
This can include developing services specifically to suit local needs and submitting bids to deliver services which are already part of primary care services, or may be delivered in the future. GP Federations improve service integration between practices and providers which improves the quality and safety of services for all our users. This model, supported in NHS England’s Five Year Forward View and the NHS Ten Year Plan, provides opportunities for practices to come together to explore new, innovative ways of delivering Primary Care at scale to the borough.
This helps to form part of the overall local NHS Strategy to attract more services into the community, to help improve care and treatments so that residents are active and healthy.
