All GP practices in England are now formed into Primary Care Networks (PCNs).
What is a Primary Care Network (PCN)?
A PCN is a group of GP practices based in a local community.
Typically it is a group of practices covering a patient population of 30,000 to 50,000. You will continue to access your GP services in the usual way and will still be registered with your own GP Practice.
What will change for you?
You may not notice much change to begin with, but over time you will see a wider range of services becoming available in your GP practice or at another practice within your PCN as partnership working enables additional services to be developed.
Which PCN are we in?
We are part of the Eden Primary Care Network (EPCN).
The other Practices in our group are: Shap, Kirkoswald, Alston, Court Thorn, Appleby, Temple Sowerby, Glenridding, The Lakes and Birbeck practices.
