About QHS

Quay Health Solutions (QHS) is a Community Interest Company, a non-profit limited company that’s designed primarily for the benefit of north Southwark community. All profit made by QHS is directed back to North Southwark Primary Care services.

QHS is one of two GP Federations in Southwark, we provide Healthcare services within and on behalf of north Southwark, Improving Health (IHL) is a GP Federation which provides services to the south of the borough.

Our GP Federation is a membership organisation that brings together, supports the delivery of healthcare services and speaks on behalf of north Southwark GP practices. We empower and support healthcare organisations to improve population health, deliver high-quality care and reduce health inequalities.

Fourteen GP practices in north Southwark came together as a Primary Care Network with Quay Health Solutions Community Interest Company to jointly deliver services that improve outcomes for our 200k registered patients. As a GP Federation, QHS provides the building blocks for at scale service delivery and wider system integration through five integrated neighbourhoods that are the delivery units of Primary Care Networks, bringing together local Health and Care organisations (including Social Care, the Voluntary Sector and patient groups) to work collaboratively to deliver more joined up, patient-centred services. 

QHS works with Partnership Southwark, our Place-Based Care Partnership, on programmes of development to support transformation of local health services.  We work collaboratively with providers and patients to co-produce solutions to the challenges we face and to maximise the impact of our services on quality and outcomes of patient care.
