Primary care services usually provide the first point of contact into the healthcare system, acting as the ‘front door’ of the NHS. Primary care includes general practice, community pharmacy, dental, and optometry (eye health) services.

The extraordinary challenges presented by COVID-19 have continued to increase the pressure on primary care services and led to a renewed focus on digital transformation and collaborative working.

At the West of England AHSN we are working with primary care on a wide range of initiatives.
