What is a Primary Care Network (PCN)?
A Primary Care Network is a group of local practices who join together to work collaboratively to offer a wider range of primary care services to their patients, involving a wider set of staff roles than might be feasible to offer for an individual practice. For example, first contact physiotherapy, social prescriber, clinical pharmacist and a vast range of other roles.
With increased demand and a shortage of clinical staff, practices find they can provide greater, more personalised care for patients when they can work together on certain services or issues.
