North Cumbria Primary Care Alliance
- North Cumbria Primary Care Alliance
North Cumbria Primary Care Alliance (NCPC) is a primary care organisation doing things differently. We are able, through our not-for profit alliance model to offer salaried GP and Salaried GP partner roles across North Cumbria, focusing on the boroughs of Carlisle, Workington and Whitehaven. What this means for you, as a clinician within our model is that you can hold a partnership role with no financial risk, business ownership or employer responsibilities. Our robust head office operation provides support at both locality and corporate level.
Our GP partners are provided with dedicated time each week to develop and demonstrate their leadership skills in lead areas, decided collaboratively by the partners with the support of the medical director.
Our model enables each of our member practices to continue to operate as local family practices, with our long term aim to develop a group of outstanding practices, providing world class patient care within the north of Cumbria.
The ethos of NCPC is one of collaboration, learning, and continuous improvement. We want our practices to become wellbeing practices, actively closing the gaps around mortality, morbidity and wellbeing. We will achieve this through strong partnerships with our local communities and the third sector.
With our close links to UCLAN medical school, The Cumbria Learning and Improvement Collaborative, local GP training schemes, and Cumbria Health on Call, we are committed to continuous learning and education, and provide training for our clinical and administrative staff such as fully funded masters degrees to our GP’s through UCLAN in Rural Medicine.
NCPC covers a wide area across North Cumbria, taking in semi-rural locations of natural beauty, with the benefit of the Lake District National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, right on our doorstep.
We provide an innovative, collaborative and supportive place to work. We are committed to maintaining NCPC as a fantastic place to work that provides outstanding quality across all of its domains to all of our patients.
