Centene Corporation does not directly own any general practitioner (GP) surgeries in England. It is the owner of Operose Health Ltd.’s holding companies. Operose Health Ltd currently hold a number of GP contracts in England.

Regardless of whether a general practice is run by an individual, a partnership or any other organisation, all providers of National Health Service core primary medical services are subject to the same requirements, regulation and standards.
