The NHS sector is seen as being one part of three of the healthcare sector, each of these we have listed separately.
The NHS is divided into primary care, secondary care, and tertiary care. Primary care is often the first point of contact for people in need of healthcare, usually provided by professionals such as GPs, dentists and pharmacists.
Secondary care, which is sometimes referred to as ‘hospital and community care’, can either be planned (elective) care such as a cataract operation, or urgent and emergency care such as treatment for a fracture. Tertiary care refers to highly specialised treatment such as neurosurgery, transplants and secure forensic mental health services.
Use of promotional vehicles within the NHS sector covers a wide variety of vehicle and event types, including training, health checks, awareness campaigns and testing
