The NHS is changing…
Working together throughout the system will make a better NHS.
Procare’s aim is to support General Practice to work at scale in order to achieve efficiencies of scale whilst respecting the autonomy of individual General Practices. This includes working with other local healthcare providers to develop and provide health services to the benefit of our patients.
Procare has grown out of this new drive for integration. We help member practices to work together to jointly address issues which are difficult to resolve individually and offer expertise and skills individual practices find uneconomic to employ. By working at scale, we can ensure the projects we take forward on behalf of our members will allow patients in our area to have more consistency in, as well as choices about, their care.

Federation: from the Latin verb foedarare – to ally.
Procare represents 19 of the 20 GP practices in our area. This means that we can work in an integrated way throughout Guildford and Waverley. Our member surgeries remain independent organisations whilst working together at scale to further develop patient care. We believe that local GPs are ideally placed to design and deliver services which are in the best interests of our patients. Being GP led ensures we always put the patient at the heart of what we do.
Working at scale means that due to integrating our working practices and coming together on specific initiatives, we have more access to more resources so that we can use NHS funding more efficiently.
We passionately believe in the NHS and we recognise that healthcare provision requires change to cope with the challenges that we face.
