Primary Care Networks

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are groups of GP practices working together with other local organisations, such as community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services. They will support the needs of a population that has grown, is living longer, and may need to access local health services more often.

Our GP practices have been working together for a number of years, through federations, networks, clusters and partnerships. The NHS Long Term Plan and the new five-year framework for the GP contract, published in January 2019, make this more formal without creating new statutory bodies.

In practice PCNs will build on the work already undertaken and the current services offered by your GP practice. It will mean greater provision of proactive, personalised and coordinated care, as well as more integration between health and social care. This will provide clear benefits for patients and GPs.

PCNs are based on GP registered lists and typically serve communities of 30,000 to 50,000. There are some smaller and some larger than this. They are designed to still provide the personalised care valued by patients, but be big enough to have impact and economies of scale through closer working.

All GP practices across the country have been encouraged to be part of a local PCN, with the aim that PCNs cover the whole country. In Lincolnshire we have 100% percent coverage via 16 PCNs.

Lincolnshire PCN Alliance

 In Lincolnshire, we have formed a PCN Alliance to act as a single voice for PCNs, working collaboratively with our health and care partners. By working as a Lincolnshire-wide Alliance we have a stronger voice to influence new pathways, service delivery and workforce development that will bring investment into primary care.
