CITY HEALTH is a Bradford GP Federation of independent GP practices covering patients.
The members remain independent organisations, whilst collaborating in the further development of local primary care.
The Federation is designed to overcome the weaknesses inherent in an industry with a large number of small providers.
The Federation facilitates practices to work together to jointly address issues which cannot easily be resolved by individual practices and offers skills and expertise that an individual practice would find uneconomic to employ, for example improving services for patients, bidding for contracts and sharing best practice.
CITY HEALTH aims to:
• Facilitate practices working together in an open, democratic and transparent way.
• Address issues by collaboration.
• Provide a management infrastructure, skills and expertise that an individual practice would find uneconomic to employ.
