What does Wigan Borough Federated Healthcare do?
The NHS as a whole, and General Practice as a part of the NHS, faces significant and unprecedented challenges, some of which require General Practice to work in a different way, and at scale.
In response to this challenge a number of Practices within Wigan came together to form Wigan Borough Federated Healthcare. The company allows the Member Practices to work at scale and in greater collaboration with other local providers, including for example Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh Foundation Trust.
Within Wigan Borough Federated Healthcare the practices work together to share resources, expertise and to provide services for patients. The company is also working to develop new services that practices individually could not provide.
