A partnership of voluntary sector organisations has launched a new tool to support Primary Care Networks to assess and improve their work with Inclusion Health groups. These are the groups identified as experiencing the worst health inequalities in England. The tool, which is supported by NHS England and NHS Improvement, was developed with input from people experiencing health inequalities and representatives from Primary Care Networks.
Primary Care Networks who use the tool are asked to assess their performance across 22 metrics. This takes around ten minutes to complete. Primary Care Networks who score highly across the 22 inclusion health metrics are able to download an Inclusion Health Quality Mark and use this across communications materials.
