The next stage in
GP practice evolution
We’re nurturing general practice in the heart of the community via a network of specialists, expert resources, strategic processes, and cutting-edge digital systems.
with traditional practice
SSP Health was created as a solution to the hundreds of struggling family doctors and practices buckling under the weight of an overloaded national healthcare system. Constrained NHS funding, precious limited resources, long hours, intense bureaucracy and lack of support all lead to a lack of time and energy for effective professional planning and deep uncertainty about the future.
Drawing on years of NHS experience and feedback from GPs nationwide, SSP Health was created to bring a new, innovative way to rescue practices from the brink of closure, retain valuable staff, and continue to provide local healthcare. SSP absorbs and manages challenging areas for struggling teams and pools resources, talent, expertise, time, and back office functions to elevate the value of each individual practice and alleviate doctors’ mounting strains and pressures.
The Future of
In a country where GPs are seeking early retirement, opting for portfolio careers, or bypassing general practice altogether, patients are let down by an obsolete system. SSP continues to grow and develop thanks to its innovative model that puts the wellbeing of both patients and staff at its core and relies on the intelligent management of a highly talented team of professionals. Our aim is to secure the future of general practices without compromising on patient and staff satisfaction.
