All GP practices in England are now formed into Primary Care Networks (PCNs).
What is a primary care network (PCN)?
- A PCN is a group of GP practices based in a local community.
- You WILL STILL be registered with your GP practice and will continue to access GP services in the usual way.
What will change for you?
- Partnership working enables patients to access additional health services provided within the PCN GP practices.
- You may not notice much change to begin with, but over time you will see a wider range of services becoming available in your GP practice or at another practice within your PCN.
Which PCN are we in?.
Grove Road Surgery belongs to ALPSGroup. Other ALPSGroup member practices are:
Lighthouse Medical Practice
Seaside Medical Centre
Arlington Road Medical Practice
How can you help to develop your PCN?
A PCN can be a great opportunity to improve quality and access to health services for your local community.
If you would like to influence how services are being developed and delivered at your GP practice or PCN level, join your patient participation group by contacting our PPG Chairman firstname.lastname@example.org
