What are Primary Care Networks?

PCNs build on current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. Clinicians describe this as a change from reactively providing appointments to proactively providing care for the people and communities they serve. PCNs usually have a 30-50k population and are geographically contiguous (next to or touching another). You can read the NHS England PCN FAQs here.
