We are a not-for-profit, social purpose development and support organisation – making primary healthcare* better for all.
Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of defined populations locally, nationally and internationally.
Our faculty of 50+ experts can inspire and energise teams, organisations and systems to create real and sustainable transformation. We do this through:
* Our work is underpinned by the WHO definition of Primary Healthcare
Meeting people’s health needs through comprehensive promotive, protective, preventive, curative, rehabilitative, and palliative care throughout the life course, strategically prioritizing key health care services aimed at individuals and families through primary care and the population through public health functions as the central elements of integrated health services
Systematically addressing the broader determinants of health (including social, economic, environmental, as well as people’s characteristics and behaviours) through evidence-informed public policies and actions across all sectors
Empowering individuals, families, and communities to optimize their health, as advocates for policies that promote and protect health and well-being, as co-developers of health and social services, and as self-carers and care-givers to others.
NAPC response to the Department of Health and Social Care White Paper Integration and Innovation: working together to improve health and social care for all
Primary care home / network:
NAPC has already supported the creation of over 300 PCH & PCN sites across England including leading PCH/N development in four integrated care systems and 13 STP areas. This covers 10 million patients or c. 17% of population and includes more than 1,000 GPs, or c. 15% GP population in England. In these programmes we worked at practice, PCH/N, place and ICS/STP level to support clinicians, managers and the population better integrate and improve care. All of our work is about understanding need, engaging people and delivering real change in partnership with the local workforce and population. Become a PCH today
