We’re a group of 9 General Practices in Rossendale, working together with our local primary care providers and community organisations to make it easier for our patients to access the healthcare they need.
What is a Primary Care Network?
Since the NHS was created 70 years ago, the population has grown - and we are living longer. Many people are living with long-term physical and mental health conditions that mean they need to access their local health services more often.
To meet the needs of our changing population, GP practices work together with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital, and voluntary services in their local areas in groups of practices known as Primary Care Networks - or PCNs.
PCNs build on existing services, allowing for more proactive, personalised, better coordinated and more integrated health and social care for people closer to home.
