Dr Naresh Rati

GP and CEO
Modality Group
He qualified from Manchester Medical School in 1993 before moving to Birmingham and joined his current practice as a partner in 1997. The practice, a large inner city Birmingham teaching and training general practice, is renowned locally for its innovative approach to providing high quality patient care.

The Modality Partnership was formed in 2009 from the merger between his practice- Laurie Pike Health Centre and a neighbouring practice in West Birmingham with an initial population base of 26,000 patients. Since then, through mergers and expansions to practice lists the Modality Partnership currently covers a patient population of 200,000 patients at over 30 sites across England. We currently employ over 500 staff and is the First National GP Partnership in the NHS with 75 GP partners.

As CEO, since its inception, he is responsible for business strategy and finance and has led the organisation through growth of £1M turnover in 2009 to >£25M turnover in 2017.

The Modality ethos is very much one of based on social philanthropy and our obsession is to make a real difference in local communities based upon general practice fulfilling its real potential as the foundation of population health. He does the best to find resources, networks and organisations with likeminded energy to support local efforts that provide real change. The doctors and staff are passionate about making a difference for our patients.

The Partnership operates within a set of core values, which emphasises its ethos and approach to developing and managing the organisation. The core values of the Partnership are:

Delivering exceptional patient care
Providing patients with greater access to care through a choice of centres
Providing patients with more convenient care enabled by technology
Developing and sustaining a learning environment
Recognised as an employer of excellence
Working with stakeholders to deliver integrated care pathways

The Modality Partnership has been analysed and independently evaluated for its effectiveness by the Nuffield Trust and Kings Fund. Their national reviews in 2013 & 2015 acknowledged that this style of super-partnership model, where there is more governance around a formal partnership across several practices appears to have the solutions for future primary care models. Modality has also worked alongside The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, based out of New Hampshire, USA.

There have been several key published documents around NHS transformation, including The Five Year Forward View and the GP Forward View which have cited Modality Partnership directly.

In 2014, Modality was successful as Wave One PM Challenge Fund Initiative during which we which introduced a new virtual digital access model for patients through the Modality App and new website as well as a centralised call centre for our practices.

In 2015, Modality was successfully awarded Vanguard Status and is one of four GP led MCP models, leading the way for system transformation and accountable care systems.

We were also recognised when the then Prime Minster, David Cameron, made his first NHS speech post his successful election in 2015 at Modality.

The Modality Partnership continues to be a leading primary care exemplar model in delivering high quality innovative care to its patients and has won several HSJ awards in technology/innovation categories.

He has a passion for sharing the Modality Partnership experience, and has given lectures/talks both nationally and internationally on Primary Care at Scale, leveraging technology in primary care, and New Care Models. His other area of clinical expertise is primary care dermatology where he still works as a GPwSI in the Modality Community Dermatology Service, one of the largest GP Led community dermatology services in the UK.
