THE FEDERATION

The Federation is designed to overcome the weaknesses inherent in an industry with a large number of small providers. The Federation facilitates practices to work together to jointly address issues which cannot easily be resolved by individual practices and offers skills and expertise that an individual practice would find uneconomic to employ, for example improving services for patients, bidding for contracts and sharing best practice.
