Wilmington Healthcare has been following the progress of Primary Care Networks as they take shape across England and mapping the new customers who will be emerging.
Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are groups of practices that collaborate locally, in partnership with community services, social care and other providers of health and care services. Funding comes from Directed Enhanced Service (DES) payments, which are an extension of the new core GP Contract. PCNs which cover 30,000-50,000 people are the building blocks for Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), which themselves cover a population of 1-3m.
Primary Care Networks will have wide-ranging contractual responsibilities and foster close cooperation on a variety of clinical and pathway issues.
Accountable Clinical Director: The Accountable Clinical Director for each Primary Care Network has overall responsibility for delivery. They lead the strategic planning, working both with the member practices and their Integrated Care System. Their wide-ranging role will cover aspects such as workforce development, service changes and patient pathways, relationships with other networks, providers and commissioners, as well as facilitating involvement with primary care research bodies.
Chairperson: The head of the board of non-executive directors. Responsible for strategy and monitoring progress.
