Tackling Health Inequalities through a practical approach to Population Health Management

A webinar series facilitated by the National Association of Primary Care (NAPC).

Delivered virtually

The NHS Long Term Plan set out a widely supported route map to tackle our greatest health challenges, from improving cancer care to transforming mental health, from giving young people a healthy start in life to closing the gaps in health inequalities in communities, and enabling people to look after their own health and wellbeing.

The aim of this webinar series is to bring together colleagues from across the South West to have conversations on ‘Tackling Health Inequalities through a simple approach to population health management’ and to build relationships across the region.

To ensure the conversation is as rich as possible, we invite colleagues from across the system, as well as those in primary care, to support ICS’s to collectively address the right priorities for their residents using their collective resources wisely.

By the end of each webinar, participants should:

  • Be reminded of the social determinants of health and wellbeing
  • Have a base level understanding of population health management – an increasingly important concept behind new care model development
  • Understand how population health management is key to tackling health inequalities


Target Audience

Facilitators – National Association of Primary Care

The facilitators for these sessions are Dr Nav Chana, Dr Leena Patel, Annabel Beasley and Andy Mullins, who will be providing a practical insight into population health management and managing health inequalities.

The National Association of Primary Care (NAPC) is a not-for-profit, social purpose development and support organisation.  Their mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of defined populations locally and nationally.  The organisation is led by serving health care professionals, which grounds them with practical experience and gives them real credibility as they work with primary health and care teams.

NAPC were responsible for developing the original Primary Care Home (PCH) model, that brings together a range of health and care professionals, to provide enhanced personalised and preventative care for their local community, based on their specific health and wellbeing needs.  The PCH Programme, led by NAPC and supported by NHSE, has gathered huge momentum since its inception in autumn 2015. From 15 original rapid test sites – there are now more than 240 sites across England, covering 11 million patients 17% of the population.

Primary Care Homes are well established and mature versions of Primary Care Networks (PCNs) – the cornerstone of the new service model featured in the NHS Long Term Plan which was published in January 2019.  Since 2015, NAPC has facilitated the development of primary health care across 5 ICSs and 14 STPs covering over 350 PCNs.
