The Primary Care Home
The Primary Care Home is a development for the NHS, by the NHS. The concept was formulated by the NAPC and is now part of the delivery of 5YFV aiming to extend participation in the new models of care programme – albeit the PCH is not part of the vanguard movement.
Simon Stevens, NHS CEO announced the launch of the PCH programme at NAPCs Annual Conference on 22nd October 2015.Find Out More
