Primary Care Networks

on . Posted in About us

Primary care networks (PCNs) are the new way for local health services to work together to treat populations.

A primary care network consists of groups of general practices working together with a range of local providers, including across primary care, community services, social care and the voluntary sector, to offer more personalised, coordinated health and social care to their local populations.

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan, with all GP practices expected to come together in geographical networks covering populations of approximately 30–50,000 patients by 1st June 2019 to benefit from additional funding attached to the GP contract.
