IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Primary Care Networks

Recent changes on how GP services are provided were announced by NHS England earlier this year. Under the new 10 Year NHS Transformation plans, all GP practices are now required to deliver services to a patient population of between 30k – 50k patients. These new services will be delivered by newly formed PRIMARY CARE NETWORKS (PCN’s). PCN’s will work to deliver new and additional services, focusing on the specific needs of each unique patient population in collaboration with other local health service providers (such as Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, Lancashire Care and local Charities.

Together with:

  • Clayton Brook Surgery
  • Withnell Surgery
  • Dr Jacobs Surgery
  • Whittle Surgery
  • Preston Road Surgery

Patients will soon be able to access newly developed services and access appointments across our wider network and as these become available we will communicate them via our website, in surgery waiting rooms and if appropriate via direct mail.
