Northumbria Primary Care (NPC) is a not for profit, at scale provider of primary care services in Northumberland and North Tyneside. Our organisation launched in 2015 with an ambition to work at scale with like-minded practices, improving resilience and quality of services for our patients whilst retaining practice identity and team composition.

We operate with a unique model of an entirely salaried workforce providing GMS/PMS services to almost 60,000 patients in the North East of England. As of April 2022 we became one of the 11 Primary Care Networks in our local geography and are proud to provide Collaborative support services to non-NPC practices and Primary Care Networks spanning more than 200,000 patients.

We have our own independent board of directors, operating as a financially viable limited company, however we also have the benefit of being a wholly owned subsidiary of the outstanding Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust. This provides the right mix of support and integration, whilst preserving independence and the ability to be fleet of foot which is imperative in primary care.   

What we do

NPC provides practices an option where partners retain their GMS/PMS contract, to continue working with their team, from their practice seeing their own patients but with the support, resilience and security of being part of a larger organisation.
