Primary Care Networks

The General Practice contract from April 2019 requires general practice to work in ‘Primary Care Networks’ (PCNs) as they are seen as the foundation of all Integrated Care Systems. 

The CCG’s role is to support general practice in the creation of networks and their ongoing development.

From 1 July 2019, all the practices within West Essex came together and developed six PCNs. These are based on their registered list and are detailed below.

Each network has appointed to the role of Clinical Director. The Clinical Directors are General Practitioners.

The networks are in their early stages of development; they have begun to meet regularly as a team and will go onto engage with wider health and social care providers (including the CCG) and patient groups to discuss how they collectively plan to improve services for their population.
