Primary Care Networks

All GP practices in England are now formed into Primary Care Networks (PCNs).

A PCN is a small group of GP practices based in the local community, typically covering a patient population of between 30,000 to 50,000.

You will still be registered with your GP practice and will continue to access GP services in the usual way it is not a merger.

Working as a PCN enables patients to access additional health services provided within the PCN, such as Clinical Pharmacists or Physios.

Fernville belongs to Beta PCN.

Other member practices include:

  • Highfield Surgery
  • Parkwood Drive Surgery

This short animation explains the concept of PCNs and how this new way of working enables health and other services to work together to provide better access for patients:
