Fourteen Primary Care Networks (PCNs) have been established in Berkshire West - the list detailing the PCNs, practices and Clinical Directors can be found here.

PCNs are clusters of neighbouring GP surgeries which have teamed up to start providing patients with a wider range of health and wellbeing services, specifically geared towards the needs of their local areas. Over time, people like social prescribers, pharmacists, physiotherapists, community mental health professionals, physicians associates and paramedics could all be based within a PCN.

A leaflet about our PCNs is available here, along with posters for our localities:

This new way of working brings health and social care closer to people and is aimed at making the NHS more efficient and effective for patients and staff. It’s the biggest transformation of primary care in the last 15 years and is part of the NHS Long Term Plan to revolutionise people’s physical, mental, emotional and social health care and make it more digitally driven. PCNs operate under the Primary Care Network DES Contract.  Details of this are available at:  NHS England » GP Contract.
