Our Vision

NAPC is an independent membership organisation representing and supporting healthcare professionals across health and care systems. We are at the centre of shaping the future of healthcare and spreading innovation, influencing policy and delivering transformational change to improve the health and wellbeing of people, communities and the workforce that serves them.

What we do

We support and enable healthcare teams across the country to take a system wide approach to delivering population health based care and support, with a focus on:

  1. Integrated neighbourhood teams
  2. Health creation and population health improvement
  3. Transformation to digital health
  4. Individual and team development

Our Values

Independence: We are authentic and autonomous, ensuring our focus aligns to the health and wellbeing needs of the population.

Creativity: We encourage alternative approaches and embrace new solutions to ensure improved health and wellbeing outcomes for people, communities and the workforce that serves them.

Trust: We engage openly and honestly with colleagues, members, partners and stakeholders; upholding our reputation and integrity.

Joy: We create meaning and fulfilment by empowering healthcare professionals to improve the health and wellbeing of their community.

The NAPC align with the WHO definition of primary care which states ‘Primary care is a model of care that supports first-contact, accessible, continuous, comprehensive and coordinated person-focused care. It aims to optimise population health and reduce disparities across the population by ensuring that subgroups have equal access to services.

Primary care is a key process in a health system that provides promotive, protective, preventive, curative, rehabilitative, and palliative services throughout the life course.”
