Public Health Wales has launched a new website for primary care. Primary Care One Wales (PCOne Wales) is described as “a central online source of information for all primary care professionals and others working with primary care clusters in Wales, and for people with an interest in their work.”

It is designed to provide context for all aspects of primary care professions, and to encourage and support collaborative working between organisations and individuals in Wales. It was developed by the Primary and Community Care Development and Innovation Hub, part of Public Health Wales.

Sections included on the website cover:

  • the 64 primary care clusters of neighbouring GP practices and partner organisations;
  • the Pacesetter Programme and ‘Pacesetters’ involved in piloting new initiatives;
  • social prescribing;
  • sharing good practice;
  • data and health intelligence;
  • primary care roles and strategy;
  • the Primary Care Cancer Framework for Wales (Gwella);
  • other resources and an events calendar.

PC One Wales also has a secure login area where members can participate in online forums and access additional information.

Rosemary Fletcher, Programme Director of the Primary and Community Care Development and Innovation Hub at PHW, said: “The Hub has been working in support of health boards and clusters in the delivery of national plans to transform primary and community care in Wales.

“Through this work the need for a national cluster website was identified: a place where colleagues can share good practice and access information about cluster plans, development initiatives and news, as well as support each other.

“The result is Primary Care One Wales, developed with health boards and clusters, which will support colleagues across Wales in their collaborative work.”

Dr Andrew Goodall, Director General for Health and Social Services, and NHS Wales Chief Executive, launched the site, added: “The online resource will help people working in primary care to keep up to date and share ideas about new ways of working.”
