Vision of the NPHCP


The National Primary Health Care Partnership's vision is a primary health care system that comprehensively meets the needs of its consumers and workers.


It is envisioned that in order to achieve this a primary health care system must:


  • Effectively engage the consumer as an equal partner in policy and service development, implementation and evaluation
  • Provide an integrated and multisciplinary team-based approach to care
  • Support its workforce by providing ongoing timely access to appropriate training and education, resources, support and infrastructure
  • Allow for flexible and innovative service models to meet local health needs at the individual, family and community levels
  • Provide quality, safe, measurable consumer care based on best-practice and evidence-based policy
  • Promote prevention and health promotion as the preferred and most cost-effective first-line approach to good health and wellbeing
