Primary Care Networks
Primary Care Networks (PCNs) form a key building block of the NHS Long Term Plan. While GP practices have been finding different ways of working together over many years, the NHS Long Term Plan and the New Five-Year Framework for the GP contract (both published in January 2019) put a more formal structure around this way of working.
Since July 1st 2019, all GP practices across Cheshire have come together in networks each covering populations of approximately 30-50,000 people.
Each Primary Care Network has appointed a local GP (or GPs) as Clinical Director.
