Primary Healthcare Monitor


The Primary Healthcare Monitor (PHM) is a product designed for charities working closely with the NHS.

By surveying healthcare professionals from across the sector, PHM helps charities to understand what the NHS needs, wants and expects from its external providers.

It’s no secret that the NHS faces formidable challenges at present, from battling Covid-19 to meeting the demands of an ageing population. The squeeze on funds is an ever present reality that medics, trusts, patients and charities alike have to cope with in different ways. 
nfpResearch understands this complex, shifting landscape. We believe that high-quality research and open channels of communication deliver better outcomes for everyone – and most importantly, for the communities that public healthcare is supposed to serve. 

PHM digs deep into the key issues shaping contemporary healthcare. How has the emergence of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) altered the landscape of provision? What are GPs and nurses’ priorities when referring patients?
These are just some of the questions we put to healthcare professionals in our annual survey, and by subscribing to PHM you will get unparalleled access to the views of this busy, time-pressured but essential audience.
