Best Practice - Conference Programme 2021


Primary Care Networks: where next…

14 Oct 2021
PMA Theatre

This session will discuss the establishment of PCNs and the relative merits of the different models. There will be an update on the changes in the employment and PCN frameworks that will affect practices and employers. PCNs allow for the retention of what constitutes the very best of how general practice and wider primary care currently operates, retaining and building on the national GMS contract and the partnership models in place, while finding improved ways to deliver care that offer tangible benefits and improvements to patients, clinicians and the wider primary care team.

The session will focus on key consideration in PCN Development which will include governance, workforce planning and operational support. The overriding driver – to bring care closer to community and connect the local primary care teams.
