UnitedHealth beats Boots to APMS contract

By Gareth Iacobucci

US health giant UnitedHealth has beaten a combined bid by Boots and Derby GPs to an APMS contract in the city.

UnitedHealth was chosen ahead of other private firms, including Chilvers McRea and One Medicare by Derby City PCT.

The decision comes with two models emerging for APMS contracts, with firms such as Boots and Virgin offering to provide the premises for GMS GPs whereas UnitedHealth and others would take on salaried GPs.

UnitedHealth also runs the Normanton practice in the city and the PCT praised it for an 'enormously successesful first year'.
