Primary care networks

Primary care networks (PCNs) are groups of practices working together to build on the current primary care services while giving greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. Primary care networks are based on practice list sizes, naturally serving communities of around 30,000 to 50,000; small enough to provide personal care while being large enough to benefit from the impact of collaboration.

More information about these networks can be found on NHS England's website.
