Network entry criteria

GP Link is a preferred doctor programme, not an insurance company. Our focus is to supply our members with access to a network of high-quality medical practices with a fixed rate fee scale. We do not pay claims or determine eligibility and benefits. GP Link network selection is based on a number of factors such as quality, services offered, location, emergency services and reviews from patients.

Our networks are accessed by insurance companies, third-party administrators and self-funded medical plans. The below fields are mandatory:

  • Be registered with the General Medical Council (GMC)
  • Be listed on the General Practitioners register
  • Have adequate and appropriate indemnity arrangements in place
  • For practices in England and Wales to be CQC registered
  • Have had an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) (formerly Criminal Records Bureau) check within the last five years
  • Following the policy of preventative health and work according to published guidance from the GMC
  • Ensuring clinicians have evidence of up-to-date Continual Professional Development in line with the GMC standards
