Primary Care Networks (PCN)
A primary care network consists of groups of general practices working together with a range of local providers such as community pharmacies, optometrists, dental providers, social care providers, voluntary sector organisations, community services providers and local government.
Networks will normally be based around natural local communities typically serving populations of at least 30,000 and not tending to exceed 50,000. They should be small enough to maintain the traditional strengths of general practice but at the same time large enough to provide resilience and support the development of integrated teams.
