Haxby Group is a ‘super-partnership’ covering 50,000 patients across the cities on York and Hull. It delivers care through 2 GMS partnerships and and an APMS contract run by Haxby Business Group Ltd – a company formed by the partners of Haxby Group for the purpose of bidding for an APMS contract.
The practice has also diversified into Community Pharmacy and runs 4 such pharmacies in a number of different organisational forms. Over the last 7 years Haxby Group has evolved from a single GMS contract in a suburb of York to be an organisation that has 22 partners, 2 GMS contracts, 1 APMS contract, 3 Ltd companies, 2 LLPs and cares for 50,000 patients in 2 cities, 2 CCGs and within 4 local Authorities.
There is a strong focus on patient care as well as training and education – the practice is an Advanced Training Practice Hub in both North Yorkshire and Humberside. The organisation is clear about the need to evolve the workforce and has actively taken steps to employ both pharmacists and paramedics as part of its clinical team.
Haxby Group is now part of a large multi-practice organisation – Nimbus Care Ltd – and is now part of development to unify all the Practices/Federations in the Vale of York into a single not for profit organisation delivering patient care through a series of Primary Care Homes.
The complexity here is subjective – in reality organisations and corporate entities have been formed as required to deliver certain functions. Our key message is that the development of trust and relationships between individuals and organisations is absolutely paramount – having that in place with agreement to do something is the most important thing – the organisational form required to do that something is secondary.
As well as the full range of GP services, we also provide community-based minor-surgery, including vasectomies and contraceptive procedures.
