English term or phrase: first line
Hello,

I'm not sure what the first line means in this sense. The content is about patients with rare diseases and their problems with finding a diagnosis and the whole care process in connection with doctors. About healthcare providers who refer to different specialists or centers and so on. Now I found this sentence, and I don't know how to understand "first line."

(“expertise centre refers to first line” and “collaboration between expertise centre and first line - advisory function”


It would be lovely if somebody could help me with it.

Thank you so much!
