Primary Care

With a growing population and people living longer often with long term conditions the demand on local health services is ever increasing.  To meet this increased demand Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are to become the building blocks to every Integrated Care System (ICS) allowing community, mental health, social care, hospital and voluntary services to work together to enable greater personalised, coordinated and integrated health and social care.  With change on this scale comes great leadership challenges.  It is, therefore, vital that there is strong leadership at all levels to achieve the standard of care required.

As a Primary Care support partner, the NHS Leadership Academy and network of regional academies are working closely together to build the leadership and organisational development capacity and capability within Primary Care to support the NHS Long Term Plan ambition.
