Primary Care Implementation Plan
Patients have most of their contact with NHS through their general practice. Other services traditionally viewed as part of primary care include community pharmacy, dental services and optometry.
NHS England’s vision is for primary care to play an even stronger role at the heart of more integrated community-based services.
The Herts Valleys CCG Primary care implementation plan considers the role of GPs as well as other providers and professionals like community pharmacy in delivering a more personalised and proactive model of care that builds our out-of-hospital services and helps deliver the objectives of Your Care, Your Future.
Expanding primary care services is an essential part of our Your Care, Your Future plan to provide patients with care closer to home and reduce unnecessary journeys to hospital.
