An innovative Primary Care Partnership
of nine GP practices

As a Primary Care Provider, having merged nine GP Practice Partnerships across Colchester and Tendring, together we care for approximately 95,000 patients and are very much 'At The Heart of Primary Care' in North East Essex.

9 Practices    |    32 Partners    |    400 Team Members    |    Caring for 95,000 Patients 

Mature Female Nurse

We are extremely privileged to have been granted Essex Anchor Institution status.


Recognition by system partners such as the Integrated Care System, Integrated Care Board and Local Authorities as the largest Primary Care provider in Essex and the positive impact we can have on our local communities is welcomed by all Partners and the Chief Executive Officer. 

Anchor institutions are large organisations that are unlikely to relocate and have a significant stake in their local area. They have sizeable assets that can be used to support their local community’s health and wellbeing and tackle health inequalities, for example, through procurement, training, employment, professional development, and buildings and land use.

There is a national shortage of qualified GP’s, so to help us recruit the professionals we need we have obtained Tier 2 Sponsorship Status – enabling us to offer sponsorship so that people already in the UK but needing a visa to stay can continue to work or obtain employment after their studies are completed. 

We also are happy to announce that we have been awarded the Essex Family Friendly Charter. Wherever possible we offer flexible working options, which can include adjusted hours and extended or flexible lunch breaks for those with caring responsibilities.  


We also support team members with family commitments, being as accommodating as possible for activities such as Family Assemblies, concerts etc. 79% of our workforce works part time, and we have a strong history of welcoming people back to part time working after becoming parents or reaching pensionable age.

Our next venture being planned is the launch of “The Colte Foundation”, where we will be able to support our team and their families with crucial welfare and wellbeing needs through grants, gifts and financing personal development opportunities such as sabbaticals or voluntary work overseas.
