In our work at National Voices, every day we hear about ways in which primary care professionals have made a positive difference to people living with mental and physical health conditions and disability. However, we also increasingly hear that the current state of play for primary care services is not working - for people accessing these services or for the primary care workforce. We find ourselves at a crossroads.
Through insights gathered within our coalition of health and care charities, we have identified nine proposals for the reform of primary care which we believe would make a significant difference for people living with health conditions and disability, and in particular people from groups that experience health inequalities, whilst also supporting the primary care workforce.
Our proposals for the reform of primary care have been signed and supported by over 50 organisations. Please share and support our vision for the future of primary care on social media using the hashtag #FutureOfPrimaryCare
