Primary care networks: Development support offer
NHS England and NHS Improvement have been carrying out considerable work shaping a Primary Care Network (PCN) development support prospectus and within that specific support to reflect the needs of PCN Clinical Directors. We are really keen to get the input of appointed PCN Clinical Directors and primary care leaders so that we can ensure the offer reflects what is needed across the country and as such are hosting a webinar aimed at this audience on Thursday 20 June at 5.30pm – 7.00pm where we will share the latest draft and ask for feedback and views about the specification. This will be your opportunity to have your say and offer additional ideas for the PCN development support offer.
Supporting the development of primary care networks: series of webinars
NHS England is continuing to support the development of primary care networks through a further series of webinars aimed at those working within primary care and the wider NHS.
The webinars will focus on a range of topics, such as how to best use technology to develop services and the role of pharmacy within PCNs, and will include examples of work already in progress across the country with a chance to ask questions and find out more about next steps in relation to the development of primary care networks.
