About

What is a Primary Care Network (PCN)?

The new GP contract was published in early 2019 as part of the Long Term Plan. A key element of the new contract is the development of Primary Care Networks (PCNs) which will bring GP practices together with other local services – such as community, mental health, social care and the voluntary sector  to look after local populations.  PCNs will help to join up services at a local level, focusing on the specific needs of these local populations, with patients still accessing routine GP appointments as they do now.

A PCN consists of groups of general practices working together with a range of local providers e.g. community services, social care and the voluntary sector, to offer more personalised, coordinated health and social care to their local populations

Networks would normally be based around natural local communities typically serving populations of at least 30,000. 

Higher Blackley, Harpurhey & Charlestown PCN

Higher Blackley, Harpurhey & Charlestown Primary Care Network is formed from a group of 9 General Practices within the North Manchester region. 

As a group of practices we are working together to ensure all patients within the area can benefit from the best healthcare. 

Although our practices still operate independently, we are now providing certain services together. We also work in partnership with other organisation across the health and care sector to meet the needs of patients. 

As a PCN we do not tolerate violence towards staff members.

Our Goals

We aim to provide high quality care across a range of services within our PCN. Working together our goal is to improve health, well being and address health inequalities within Higher Blackley, Harpurhey and Charlestown.
