About NCGPA

Nottingham City General Practice Alliance (NCGPA) was formed in 2016. We are Nottingham city’s first GP Federation, often referred to as NCGPA or the Alliance.

Our members consist of 45 GP practices which cover a population of over 336,000 patients. At NCGPA we are committed to combining the time honoured valued of list-based general practice model with the benefits of working together collaboratively.

NCGPA is a Company Limited by shares, with its member practices being equal shareholders. The company is managed by a board of 8 elected representatives from member practices and three co-opted positions representing nursing, lay and non-principal GPs.

What is a GP Federation?

In the ever-changing and challenging general practice landscape, practices have been encouraged to work more closely together. Typically, this can be in loose networks or more formal arrangements with increasingly binding agreements between practices. In some parts of the country ‘Super Partnerships’ have been created holding a single contract. Nottingham city’s practices decided to form a GP Federation called Nottingham City General Practice Alliance (NCGPA).

When a practice is a member of a Federation, they continue to exist independently, but their membership allows them to operate collaboratively with other practices in their locality. This approach provides opportunities for economies of scale along with access to funding not available to individual practices. Practices, therefore, have more opportunities to access resources and to improve and continue to deliver high-quality care to their patient communities.
