Kent GPs win APMS contracts

Kent GPs have won contracts to run five APMS practices across England, including two GP-led health centres.

Medway PCT has awarded the tender for a GP-led health centre in Gillingham to GPs from the Dulwich Medical Centre in South London.

GPs at The College Practice, from Maidstone, were also announced winners of a tender for two new practices, in Chatham and Luton.

And West Kent PCT announced that Fleet Healthcare, a consortium of seven local GP practices, will run the GP-led health centre in Gravesend, in conjunction with the companies GPI and Circle Health.

Kent LMC Clerk David Barr said the contracts would ensure that ‘GPs retain their place at the forefront of patient care in a primary care setting.'
