100Fold CIC GP Flexible Pool
100Fold CIC is a Community Interest Company in Somerset who have been set up to support Primary and Secondary Care across the county. Our aim is to provide people and solutions; re-investing any surplus into services that benefit the people of Somerset. Initially, we made a vital contribution in supporting the Covid Vaccination Program and consequently have a bank of Vaccinators and Admin staff who have a range of clinical and non-clinical experience.
Latterly, 100Fold have been awarded the contract to develop and deploy a GP Flexible Pool and we have been working hard to get it up and running as one of our core activities. The GP Flexible pool is operated and deployed by 100Fold, in partnership with Lantum and the Somerset ICB, to support the practices of Somerset with both remote and face-to-face GPs.
What is the GP Flexible pool?
The GP Flexible Pool is a pool of general practitioners (both remote and face-to-face) who support the partnered practices with consultations and clinical admin. It offers GPs a secure, salaried contract including sick and holiday pay, as well as NHS Pension.
Our partnered practices are able to go onto Lantum (the booking platform used for the pool) to post the sessions that they require support with, and our GPs are then able to go on and book into those that suit them.
