What are ‘Primary Care Networks’?

Many people are living with long term medical conditions or suffering from mental health issues and may need to access their local health services more often.

To meet these needs, GP practices work together with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital, voluntary, community and social enterprise services in their local areas in groups known as Primary Care Networks (PCNs).

PCNs form part of our Local Care Partnerships.
