Primary Care Networks

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 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 Keswick & Solway Primary Care Network. Practices in our group are:

  • Aspatria Medical Group
  • Caldbeck Surgery
  • Castlehead Medical Centre
  • Dalston Medical Group
  • Silloth Group Medical Practice
  • The Croft Surgery Kirkbride
  • Wigton Group Medical Practice

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
