Primary Care Networks – a new NHS initiative to improve care
Local Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are being established by clinical commission groups (CCGs) to facilitate and encourage GP practices to work together in clusters with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their locality. Each PCN will serve local populations of 30,000 to 50,000 people, providing clear benefits for patients and clinicians through economies of scale and better integration of care.
Additional funding is provided for clinical pharmacists, physician associates, physiotherapists and paramedics and one of the main goals is to provide more proactive care to patients at risk of poor health outcomes.
