Pathfinder consortia



The 52 groups of GP practices from across England who will become the first wave of GP consortia under the Government’s new commissioning plans. They will cover 12.8 million patients across England, around a quarter of the country’s population, and have been selected to road test the ability of GPs to take over from PCTs. They range from one made up of just one GP practice, to others covering more than 70. The GP pathfinders include practices providing healthcare to 28.6 million people across England.
