Our story

Formed in 2017 our Wakefield’s five GP federations, our member practices work collaboratively as part of a confederation so that we can deliver greater benefits for patients across Wakefield District.

On this page you can learn more about the beliefs and principles we work to, our milestones and awards and the local partners we work closely with to make Wakefield District healthcare the best it can be.

Our mission, our vision and our values

Our mission

Conexus Healthcare CIC provides tangible support that benefits our practices and the people of Wakefield.

Our goals

  • Provide a pick-and-mix offer of support to our practices and primary care networks that supports and strengthens their operations.
  • Deliver district-wide services under our brand "GP Care Wakefield," that help expand general practice to local people and improve access to primary care services.
  • Hold district-wide contracts on behalf of general practice for delivery by our PCNs or practices.
  • Provide a one-stop-shop for general practice training and consultancy in West Yorkshire and sell our accredited training programmes nationally.
  • Support practices to provide district-wide services where the efficiencies or scale dictate the need to deliver it once.
  • Offer a unified voice for general practice in the district and advocate for general practice within our wider community of stakeholders.

Our values

Our people, teams and culture are what people know and trust us for best. Our values proudly guide our decisions and influence our actions every day we come to work:

  • We are transparent and honest.
  • We actively listen and collaborate.
  • We deliver great value through quality and innovation.
  • We are proud to grow our business and learn from our mistakes.
  • We share our learning generously.
  • We cultivate and develop primary care staff, providers and leaders.


Patient experience, learner feedback and positive support from our member practices are the most important success signals for Conexus.

It’s still nice to be recognised for the hard work of our teams and practices though in national awards. Here are just a few of them:
