The report Future of Primary Care published by the National Primary Care Network (NPCN) – a group of more than 500 healthcare professionals from across primary care – says a complete primary care overhaul is necessary.
The report, based on discussions held at a recent NPCN quarterly meeting of healthcare leaders and clinicians on the topic of future models of primary care, says there is a widely-held desire to turn pharmacy into one of the key providers of community care alongside GP practices.
