Have a successful organisation you can be proud of

Helping GPs, PCNs and GP federations build sustainable and resilient practices that thrive




Sustainable general practice shouldn't feel out of reach

Running a successful general practice, PCN or GP federation is tough. With so much to juggle it can be easy to lose sight of what's best for the business. You can't fix all the problems no matter how many hours you put in, so it sometimes feels overwhelming. And sustainability feels further away than ever. You sometimes feel like throwing the towel in.

Leading a stellar practice, PCN or GP federation doesn't have to feel this hard. As a healthcare professional, when you need guidance you always have a specialist to refer to. It should be no different for your business. Here's the thing, you don't need all the answers, because expert business advice is at hand.
And it's never too late to make your organisation a success.

Running a business is tough

I understand the pressure you are under. I have worked with NHS practices, PCNs and GP federations across England, so I understand the challenges you face.
As an NHS management consultant, I believe our General Practice is the jewel in the crown of our health service. That's why I’ve supported GPs for 15 years with:
● overseeing successful mergers
● forming more than 50 GP Federations.
● developing primary care networks
● setting up new CCG contracts, hospital subcontracts and pathways
● troubleshooting
I've taken organisations from the brink of collapse to resilient and highly profitable operations. And I've helped PCNs develop remarkable plans to achieve their vision through the creation of innovative projects and collaborations.
I know you want the best outcomes for your patients and your practice. And I can show you how.

Scott has supported Lumos Diagnostics with an excellent online training package that has enabled the team to really focus in on identifying the right customer and the right message, which is critical for our small team so that we can best utilise the limited resource for maximum return. I'd highly recommend this to other teams looking to identify business ready organisations and to move away from acquisition costs to complete pathway costs.

"Scott helped us not only in the formation of our Federation but on a continuing basis. Scott has a powerful personality which wins him the respect of those he works with and his ingenuity keeps us on our toes! He is an exceptional and inspirational leader, self motivated and dedicated to the success of the projects he works on. His knowledge base is phenomenal.”


Lynn Slater

Director of Primary Care Warwickshire
GP Federation

"I've used Scott for three different challenges - setting up a CCG, setting up the ABC Federation and most recently facilitating discussions between my practice and another local practice who wish to merge. Scott has an unrivalled knowledge and experience of the workings of the NHS. He has the uncanny ability to ask the most difficult of questions in a manner that is disarmingly charming. He can spot the elephant in the room and get everyone else to acknowledge it and come up with a solution to resolve it. He works tirelessly until the job is completed. ”

Dr Joe McGilligan

GP Governing Body Member at
Surrey Heartlands CCG

“I have worked with Scott for a number of years on projects involving federations of GP practices. Scott has a good understanding of NHS structures and policy. His great strengths are his ability to demystify the jargon, to engage with GPs and practice managers, to inspire and motivate practices and federation boards and to help them find practical solutions to the challenges they face.”
