Primary care home
NAPC are the architects of the primary care home (PCH) model – the original primary care network which was launched in 2015 by NHS England Chief Executive Sir Simon Stevens. The PCH model has informed the development of national PCN policy as set out in the NHS Long Term Plan and the five-year framework for GP contract reform.
NAPC’s primary care development expertise is in high demand abroad. We have worked with organisations across the world including the USA, Ireland, India and South Africa to provide bespoke expertise on integrated care, primary care network development, digitalisation and population health management.
This is a one-year diploma to develop the skills and competencies for managing primary care at scale within the NHS. Develop the expertise to lead the transformation of primary care for primary care networks as set out in the NHS Long Term Plan and new GP contract.
NAPC can support you to develop your receptionists, practice managers, nurses and pharmacists in active signposting through our well-established and enhanced care navigation programme. We have now trained more than 300 care navigators with different programmes tailored to meet your needs.
