Primary Care Networks
We believe our role as a membership organisation is to support our member practices in making Primary Care Networks (PCNs) a success. We recognise that the PCNs are a critical part of the new Primary Medical Services Contract, and it is important they are successful for practices in helping with workload and workforce challenges, as well as delivering benefits for patients.
Our offer to PCNs is made up of the following components:
- Employment of the additional clinicians and social prescribers.
- Support for Clinical Directors including options for employment and establishing a formal Clinical Executive for Clinical Directors to lead provider strategy.
- Administrative and back office support for PCNs.
- Liaison with Integrated Care provider partners – Barts Health NHS Trust, ELFT, and London Borough of Newham – to support PCNs in progressing integrated care.
