The Academy of Fab NHS Stuff and the National Association of Primary Care

The primary care home (PCH) programme has been attracting considerable interest and enthusiasm since it was launched by the National Association of Primary Care (NAPC) at its annual conference in October 2015.

The programme, which is supported by NHS England, strengthens and redesigns first contact, primary care, around the health and social care needs of local communities of between 30,000 to 50,000 people. ‘A complete care community’ provides care to this registered population. Patients are served by a single integrated and multidisciplinary team, including primary, secondary, community, social and voluntary sector carers. Whilst patients are provided with personalised, coordinated and responsive care nearer to their home, the needs of the registered population are also better analysed to inform early detection, prevention and improved health screening.
