About the Collaborative Primary Care at Scale webinar

Primary care provides the majority of a population’s preventative and curative health needs, health promotion and care monitoring requirements, mostly in community settings. It is the anchor around which wider healthcare services are provided.

Primary healthcare can be considered as both a level in a health system (its form) and a strategy or philosophy for organising approaches to care (its function).

At this State of the Nation launch event, we relate to the four independent contractor services which constitute that level in the NHS, and consider how to achieve a more collaborative, at-scale approach.

Hosted in partnership with Healthworks.
