Stronger Together

The National Association of Primary Care (NAPC) is pleased to announce a number of new affiliations with other national representative healthcare organisations.  The NAPC will now be working closely with the Royal College of Emergency Medicine, the Optical Confederation and the National Community Hearing Association.  These organisations join our established working relationship with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.  Senior Leadership from these organisation have now been co-opted onto the council of the NAPC. Also, as the voice of primary care for the NHS Confederation, we are creating a force for change through a ‘stronger together’ relationship.

Dr James Kingsland OBE, President of NAPC said, “We are delighted to be working with these organisations to facilitate collective solutions to the challenges currently facing our NHS, networking best practice and align policy developments within these organisations for the benefit of patients. Forming these strategic affiliations demonstrates how the wider NHS community can have a unified voice to help describe how the out of hospital care and urgent and emergency medicine can be delivered more efficiently and effectively.

Dr Nav Chana, Chairman of the NAPC added “If we are going to cope with demand outside hospital, improve care services and population health, the service urgently needs this type of joined up leadership, collaborative working and co-production of practical solutions for people at national and local level.”
