The Jubilee Street Practice enters an arrangement to protect its long-term future as an independent GMS practice by joining the GP Care Group, following the Island Health Practice's earlier successful partnership with the Care Group. It hopes to maximize opportunities of scale within an organisation that has a track record of understanding and valuing primary 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 organisational 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 Care Group 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."
