Primary Care Network

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are groups of General Practices that together create more collaborative workforces. The intention is that by July 2019, all areas within England will be covered by a PCN.

We are part of the EAST:MK PCN which consists of the following;

  • Ashfield Medical Centre
  • Central Milton Keynes Medical Centre
  • The Grove Surgery, and
  • Milton Keynes Village Practice

Primary Care Networks form key building blocks of the NHS long-term plan. The key benefits include an increase in the availability of care provided to patients, provide a wider range of services, integration with the wider health and care systems, sharing financial and estate pressures, and staff recruitment.

The introduction of PCNs means that General Practices may share your information with other practices within the PCN to provide you with your care and treatment.
