Coming soon - NHS Networks

An exciting initiative developed from the NatPaCT website launches soon.

NHS Networks is a new initiative to connect people and ideas across the NHS - with each other and with policy makers.

We will shortly be launching its website here , providing space and facilities for more people and organisations to share their experiences and successes.

The new site will continue to provide news, discussion forums, email bulletins and a wide range of content areas in key areas such as the management of Long Term Conditions. NHS Networks will draw in other networks from across the NHS, as well as building on the the work of the National Primary Care Networks and Engaging Communities Learning Networks

The existing NatPaCT site will be available for at least a year as an archive via this address - and through a link on the new site.

You can find the revamped Primary Care Contracting site at as well as through links on this and the new site.

If you are already a subscriber to New@NatPaCT your details will automaically be carried across and you will continue to receive email bulletins from the new site. Your subscription will also continue to work for

We will bring you more details over the next few weeks.
