GPI are now the premises partner for the National Association of Primary Care (NAPC).
The NAPC is a leading membership organisation representing the interests of primary care professionals including general practitioners, nurses, practice staff, pharmacists, opticians and dentists.
As an NAPC partner, GPI will be on hand to provide premises expertise and advice to the association’s extensive membership and networks including more than 190 primary care homes and 82 GP federations. NAPC’s primary care home programme is an innovative approach to strengthening and redesigning primary care. Launched in 2015, It brings together a range of health and social care professionals to work as a complete care community focusing on local population needs.
The partnership between GPI and the NAPC recognises that primary care is changing, that GP partners require expert advice in terms of planning for the future and managing their estate and that patients deserve the best possible experience when accessing healthcare in the community.
GPI Chairman, Richard Kelvin-Hughes commented: ‘We’re delighted to form this partnership with the NAPC, an organisation that shares GPI’s belief in the primary care sector and is looking to the future with confidence. Both organisations work with practices to achieve innovation and solve problems and the primary care estate should act as an important key in unlocking the potential of general practice’.
NAPC Chief Operating Officer, Sally Kitt said: ‘We welcome the opportunity to work with organisations that reflect our values and ethos. At NAPC, we are committed to supporting our members and our new partnership with GPI, as a specialist developer of primary care premises, is part of our ongoing package of support to assist and offer valuable expertise.’
