This statement includes all legal entities within and associated to FedBucks Limited as the parent company.  This statement relates to actions and activities during the financial year ending 31st March 2023 and is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the ‘Act’).

This statement sets out the actions of FedBucks Limited to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains.

Our organisation is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.

Organisational structure and supply chains

FedBucks is a federation of 47 GP practices covering a population of over 500,000 patients across Buckinghamshire. We began in 2016 and now employ around 250 members of staff at our head office site, and across our planned and unplanned care services.

As a GP Federation, we are proud to represent our member practices and to champion primary care by working with local general practice and system partners in the provision of community-based healthcare services. We are dedicated to providing safe and compassionate care to our patients across our range of planned and unplanned healthcare services in Buckinghamshire and believe in continuous commitment to quality service delivery and positive patient outcomes.

Patients are at the heart of everything we do, and we pride ourselves in our purpose when enabling excellent patient care and supporting general practice.

We’re committed to continuously improve our practices to identify and eliminate slavery and human traffic in our business and supply chains and to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.

Our supply chains include the procurement of agency labour, medical consumables, facilities maintenance, utilities and waste management.


Our internal policies and supplier contracts reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.  Similar expectations around ethics and compliance are clearly communicated by FedBucks to our supply chain partners. When entering formal arrangements with suppliers and when periodically reviewing supply chains, we continuously seek to detect any indicators of slavery or human trafficking.
