Who we are

We represent all 40 GP practices in London’s City and Hackney areas, which have joined forces to provide safe, high-quality GP health care to local patients and residents.

We work together to provide primary healthcare services across City and Hackney, sharing knowledge, resources and skills. It means we can give patients faster access to the right medical help or wider wellbeing support with challenging life situations, when they need it.

Every practice in the London Borough of Hackney and the City of London Corporation is a member of the City and Hackney GP Confederation.

Our Confederation is a not-for-profit, community interest company (CIC). Since we launched in 2014, we have grown from strength to strength. We are now a well-established leader among other GP networks, which are still emerging across the UK.

Our members are all independent, self-managed practices. Our success and strength as a well-run, co-ordinated confederation means our GP member practices remain independent, but speak with one voice.  This has helped us secure extensive funding for our practices, allowing them to improve and develop high-quality primary care lasting into 2025.
