Primary Care Network Support

‘Small enough to care, large enough to cope’, PCNs are based around populations of between 30,000 to 50,000 people.

Essentially, PCNs bring GP practices together with their community service partners to work at scale in order to:

  • Improve their resilience
  • Improve their ability to recruit and retain staff
  • Improve their ability to manage financial and estates pressures
  • Enable a larger range of services to be provided to patients
  • Integrate more easily with the wider health and care system

There are currently five PCNs supporting local people across Herefordshire:

North and West Herefordshire PCN

Kington Medical Practice, Weobley Surgery, Mortimer Medical Practice, Ryeland Surgery, Tenbury Surgery
