Are you GP looking for something a bit different, now?

Suffolk GP Federation is proud to partner with ESNEFT to provide GP Streaming Services within Ipswich hospital. Suffolk GP Federation has opportunities for GPs to work within our Streaming Service.

Looking forward: The Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) Ipswich

We are building a team towards an exciting new development at Ipswich Hospital.

The Fed, in partnership with ESNEFT, will be running the UTC in Ipswich. The centre will be primary care focussed, building on the best principles of the Streaming Service. Planned opening is early 2024, we are looking for interest from clinicians to join our team.

About us-

Suffolk GP Federation is a not-for-profit community interest organisation owned by 57 GP practices covering the Suffolk region. Members remain independent organisations, whilst working together to develop local primary care. Working alongside our partners at Ipswich hospital creates a unique setting for clinicians to utilise their primary care skills in a dynamic and interesting environment working within the hospital setting.

How does it work?

Patients are streamed at the front door of ED by our Streaming Clinician. They are booked and directed to an appointment with our GP.

You can admit / refer patients direct to hospital specialities without returning the patient to ED
