What is a Primary Care Home?


Primary care home is an innovative approach to strengthening and redesigning primary care.

Developed by the National Association of Primary Care (NAPC), the model brings together a range of health and social care professionals to work together to provide enhanced personalised and preventative care for their local community.

Staff come together as a complete care community – drawn from GP surgeries, community, mental health and acute trusts, social care and the voluntary sector – to focus on local population needs and provide care closer to patients’ homes.

As a primary care home we are trying to achieve these four key characteristics:

  • an integrated workforce, with a strong focus on partnerships spanning primary, secondary and social care

  • a combined focus on personalisation of care with improvements in population health outcomes

  • aligned clinical and financial drivers through a unified, capitated budget with appropriate shared risks and rewards 

  • provision of care to a defined, registered population of between 30,000 and 50,000
