Non-urgent advice: Primary Care Networks

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key aspect of the NHS Long Term Plan, with general practices being a part of the network, typically covering 30,000-50,000 patients. PCNs, and the structures and funding they provide, allow services to be developed locally, in response to the needs of the patients in their area.

To support PCNs, the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) provides funding for 26,000 additional roles to create bespoke multi-disciplinary teams. Primary care networks assess the needs of their local population and, working with local community services, make support available to people where it is most needed.
