OUR partnership with Bradford Districts and City CCG to develop 10 or 11 new Primary Care Home (PCH) Community Teams, which will serve populations of 30,000 – 60,000 people, is gathering pace.
The aim of developing PCH Community Teams is to bring together a range of health and social care providers, who will work collaboratively within a unified leadership team to identify local population needs.
These teams will lead on the development, design, implementation and evaluation of service improvement initiatives.
And, in turn, these initiatives will ensure the most efficient and effective use of existing resources to offer the best possible care for people to remain happy, healthy and at home.
National Association for Primary Care (NAPC)
This new model of care is based on the NAPC Primary Care Home model. The NAPC is a membership organisation and it has rolled out this model across more than 210 sites in England – including ours.
Core characteristics of a BCA Primary Care Home Community
- Whole population health management – providing preventative and curative services, health promotion and long-term care
- An integrated, multi-disciplinary workforce focused on a holistic, personalised approach rather than disease focus
- Financial drivers aligned with the health needs of the whole population
- Focus on 30,000-50,000 people
