Primary Care Home is a National Association of Primary Care (NAPC) brand and model that promotes collaboration of practices and wider partners and stakeholders to improve population health and well-being. There are four key characteristics that make up a primary care home:
- an integrated workforce, with a strong focus on partnerships spanning primary, secondary and social care;
- a combined focus on personalisation of care with improvements in population health outcomes;
- aligned clinical and financial drivers through a unified, capitated budget with appropriate shared risks and rewards; and
- provision of care to a defined, registered population of between 30,000 and 50,000.
