There are 17 federations encompassing the whole of the NI region. Each of the 17 federations will cover about 100,000 patients with, on average, 20 practices. The federations are all Community Interest Companies in the Not for Profit Sector.
NI is the only part of the UK which has a unified model of Federations governed by a unified Members Agreement covering its entire population.
Within the federation organisational model the GP practice is sovereign with the number of “Member Directors” being one per practice.
The federations are supported by the Federation Support Unit (FSU). The FSU has been designed to provide federation members of Belfast and the South East with excellent, affordable support initially in the provision arena.
