Some of these cookies are essential in order for a website to run as you expect it to (for example, placing an item in a shopping basket) while others allow us to provide you with a better service (for example, understanding what content is most popular, to provide you more of the same).

Our cookie policy

We understand you need to reach the most relevant information quickly and easily. So, our main aim of using cookies is to provide you with the most optimised 'user experience' possible.

Our website analytics tool uses cookies in order to analyse how, when and where visitors use our websites, but this information is not tied to personally identifiable information. We only use this data to improve your experience. For example, we are able to find out what the most popular content is each week, and update our homepage to reflect that current interest.

We currently operate an 'implied consent' policy. This means that we assume you agree with the usage of our cookies. If you do not agree, we have provided guidance to help you to alter your browser settings to match the level of privacy you require (see ‘How to manage cookies via your browser settings’ section below).

For members and registered users of our website, if your cookies aren't enabled on your computer, it will mean that your experience when logged in to our website will be limited to browsing (for example, you won't be able to add products to your basket and buy them).

About Us

Partnered with the National Association of Primary Care (NAPC)

NAPC - the largest network of Primary Care Networks in the UK

We are partnered with NAPC, The National Association of Primary Care, to provide their members with exclusive access to our innovative quality management systems and toolkits.

The NAPC developed the Primary Care Home model, that has now been adopted by NHS England as the blueprint for Primary Care Networks (PCNs).

 NAPC - National Association of Primary Care

NAPC boasts over 240 PCH sites across England who have access to the innovative toolkits developed by everythingCQC, which promise to transform workplace culture by simplifying and standardising quality frameworks across PCNs at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods.

This is a knowledge and experience sharing network for PCNs and is free to join. If you are not already a member of this programme, you can do so by heading over to www.napc.co.uk/how-to-join/.

 

Professor James Kingsland OBE - key advisor to everythingCQC

The biggest change in Primary Care in 25 years


If you are looking for the person that has quietly changed the direction of the NHS for the next decade and more, it is Professor James Kingsland.

The immediate past President of the NAPC, Professor Kingsland is the co-architect of the Primary Care Home initiative funded by NHS England who oversaw the successful national roll out and remains its National Clinical Director.

This blueprint of integrated care proved so compelling that NHS England commissioned the NAPC team headed by Professor Kingsland and Dr Nav Chana to pilot the Primary Care Home concept. This has now become mandatory by NHSE making it part of the GP contract under the model of Primary Care Networks (PCNs).

 Prof James Kingsland

He brings with him over 30 years of knowledge in Primary Care and Integrated Care, and a vision to create a new way of working. He has a very long and distinguished history of leading change in Primary Care and will now help us shape our “360 degree Workplace” initiative for more interpersonal and cohesive workplace.

In line with the PCN initiative the 360 degree Workplace will be a unifying methodology creating a common standard for Healthcare and Adult Social Care

One unified CQC system for Healthcare & Adult Social Care

We are experienced in both Healthcare and Adult Social Care.

The regulations are the same for all providers, and so are the core principles of quality and compliance.

  1. Standardisation across all provider types
  2. Easy standardisation for complex providers
  3. Easy for us to support
  4. Easy for cross collaboration
  5. Ready for integrated care
