Narrative-based primary care has emerged in the United Kingdom through the convergence of narrative-based medicine and family systems medicine. This article describes how the convergence took place and gives an account of the theoretical ideas that underpin narrative-based primary care. The approach is illustrated with a case example and commentary. Drawing on both psychodynamic and dialogical theory, I argue that the role of primary care is often to find a new story that fits better than the old one.
