What is a PCN

Primary care networks

Since the NHS was created in 1948, the population has grown and people are living longer. Many people are living with long term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease or suffer with mental health issues and may need to access their local health services more often.

To meet these needs, GP practices are working together with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in groups of practices known as primary care networks (PCNs)

Our Primary Care Network (PCN) is dedicated to enhancing your healthcare experience by providing a comprehensive suite of services directly to our practice. These services include Extended Access and Social Needs services, ensuring you, as our valued patient, have access to a diverse array of appointments.

Our offerings range from Social Prescribing to First Contact Mental Health Support, among others, designed to meet your needs. Furthermore, we actively encourage patient involvement through our Patient Participation Groups, offering you a voice in the continuous improvement of our services. For the latest updates and detailed information, we invite you to explore the most recent newsletters provided by the Primary Care Network Team.
