Primary Care Federations throughout the UK are diverse and all offer a unique approach to delivering excellent patient care for their community.  Professor Becky Malby covers more detail in her blog about how they can function as a club or a network. 

There is lots of comprehensive guidance on the legal structure of Primary Care Federations and we cover this through other resources on the site.  Whilst the guidance is helpful it is perhaps more useful to explore how the federations define their core purpose and organise their systems to deliver care for the community in which they are situated.

The following organisations are featured to give an overview of Primary Care Federations, how they define their purpose and the practicalities of the approach.
