Cannock North Primary care Network

Did you know we are part of a collaborative Primary care Network (PCN)? Find out more in this article.

In general, people are living longer, and some are living with a number of conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma and mental health issues. Primary Care Networks are groups of GP Practices based around a GP registered list of approximately 30000 to 50000 patients, bringing practices together in order to offer care on a scale which is small enough for patients to get the continuous and personalised care they value, but large enough to be resilient, through the sharing of workforce, administration and other functions of general practice.

The benefits of these services working together are:

  •  Longer opening hours
  •  Sharing staff
  •  Better access to specialist health professionals
  •  Services closer to home
  • Ability to share information and technology

Primary Care Networks are an important building block of developing our current community services to support better delivery of hands-on, personalised, coordinated and more joined-up health and social care.

We are part of the Cannock North Primary Care Network and the Cannock Chase Clinical Alliance.
