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.

Primary care is changing

The NAPC not only recognises this but has been a driver for change within primary care. It established the National Association of Provider Organisations (NAPO) network in response to enabling and supporting existing and emerging primary care provider organisations and federations.

NAPO meets four times a year with an agenda built around the needs of its members.

Innovation in Primary Care

For the NAPC, innovation is not just about new ideas and processes, it’s about giving primary care the permission and space to think differently.

We provide this environment. Working collaboratively across the breadth of primary care from GP practices and pharmacies to industry and affiliated partners, creating the right conditions to test, learn, share and sustain proven innovation making a difference to the patient population.
