What is a Primary Care Network (PCN)
A Primary Care Network is a group of GP practices coming together to share their experience, workforce and services, with the aim of better meeting the needs of their community.
What does that mean to me as a Patient / Community??
In sharing GP practice resources and working together, they can widen the range of services they can offer you.
These services may be offered within the network of GP practices and at times that are varied, so they can better meet you and your families busy lives.
It is not about cutting services it is about building on them and enhancing those that already exist - so they can be more effective for you.

TO OUR PRIMARY CARE NETWORK WEBSITE AND COMPLETE OUR PATIENT SURVEY. WHERE YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR NEW CLINICS
So for example, you will see new clinics that cover services that used to be delivered either by health, and/or your social services. Only now they are joined up and in one place, closer to where you live and being run from a clinic in your GP network. They may well help you directly, but they can also provide wider advice and care to family members
and those who support you and your family.
Check in on the Website for Regular Updates and on Services, you or your family might like to know more about.
