Our new identity

Over 10 years since the formation of Battersea Healthcare, in the autumn of 2023 the Board led a review of our corporate structure, mission and purpose, to ensure that: 

  • Our vision for the future, our mission statement & role as partners in the local health and care system are relevant and clearly described.
  • We have a name that better reflects our role in supporting general practice and delivering services across the whole borough of Wandsworth.
  • We update our Articles of Association to ensure they are fit for purpose.
  • We have fairness and equity in shareholder arrangements, with every GP practice in Wandsworth holding equal status in supporting the work and future governance of the Federation.

What has changed?

Following a period of discussion and consultation with our shareholder GP Practices, a number of changes to our corporate working arrangements were unanimously agreed, including to:

  • adopt a new mission statement for the organisation
  • reform the Federation as one Community Interest Company
  • adopt new Articles of Association
  • re-name the organisation as Wandsworth GP Federation CIC
  • Reform shareholding arrangements based on one share per GP practice in Wandsworth

The changes were formally introduced from 15th April 2024
