Primary care is the keystone of the NHS, providing high-quality responsive integrated care for patients in health and care systems.
Integral to the transformation and future of the NHS, our vision is for primary care to be valued, supported, well-resourced and empowered to drive innovation, improve population health and reduce health inequalities.
We have now launched our new enhanced network for primary care – the only network bringing together primary care with the rest of the healthcare system.
As a result, our primary care networks – the PCN Network and Primary Care Federation Network – have united, resulting in a new and powerful voice for the sector.
The network aims to:
connect and support primary care leaders in their role to improve the health and wellbeing of communities, enabling people to have longer, more fulfilling lives
maximise the influence and impact of primary care at neighbourhood, place and system level playing an ever-increasing partnership role in the design and delivery of personalised, integrated care
drive the future direction of primary care through inspiring excellence, developing leaders and change-makers, and positively transforming care.
It is open to:
- primary care networks (PCNs)
- GP federations
- any primary care provider.
