Patients first: Our approach to delivering sustainable primary care

As the health system transforms to put place and patient at its core, Primary Care Networks (PCNs) will be the foundation of integrated care systems (ICSs).  A new multi million pound fund from the centre means PCNs must develop at pace to ensure the benefit of this cash injection. As integrated systems around them evolve, they must both lead by example and adapt to new ways of working.

We have brought together a partnership to offer support to the effective development of PCNs. Together with our partners, we have already delivered hugely successful NHS programmes across primary care and to over 100 CCGs with great results. We know how to run programmes that are consistent across systems and locally tailored to each and every site we work with based on their unique challenges.

Our approach

With our partners we have developed a response to these issues that is citizen centred and asset based. We believe in creating resilience by bringing local practices together to support each other to deliver work life balance, financial viability, digitisation and improved patient access.

Timescales to deliver against the Long Term Plan and to access the fund are tight and so PCNs must quickly develop plans which are accepted by all stakeholders as well as review their workforce planning requirements and assess funding considerations.

We have developed a roadmap showing what PCNs need to do and by when.
