Southern GP Federation Support Unit
Empowering General Practice to provide best primary care
GP Federations have been established by GPs to support General Practice and facilitate the transformation agenda in health and social care in a primary care setting. There are three GP Federations in the Southern area. Each Federation has been established as a clinically led not-for-profit Community Interest Company. Through the pooling of resources and working at scale, this makes possible the provision of services which would not otherwise be delivered at individual practice level. The Southern GP Federation supports 72 GP Practices across the three Federations which collectively cover a patient population of approximately 425,000.
Armagh & Dungannon GP Federation, Craigavon GP Federation and Newry & District GP Federation.
The work of these Federations is supported by the Southern Federation Support Unit (SFSU). The SFSU has been designed to provide Federation members with support, advice and expertise in the design and delivery of service provision. SFSU functions include central management expertise, planning, accounting, communication, corporate governance, human resources and the delivery of a range of services on behalf of Federations. The core purpose of SFSU is to ensure that clinicians are free to focus on ensuring that they provide the best clinical outcomes for their patients, while improving the quality of care that they receive.
