Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan and see groups of practices work together to provide integrated and focused care to the local population.
When forming partnerships with other practices it is crucial that all elements of this legally binding agreement are suitable for you, and the other professionals involved.
A PCN agreement is a governance document and is very similar to a partnership or shareholders’ agreement. It should ensure all parties have a clear understanding of how the PCN will operate and the role and obligations of every member involved. It is particularly important to cover how funding is held and distributed and also the important issue of staffing – how they will both be employed and managed.
When a PCN is first established, it is likely that there will be a number of changes in the first few months or even years. It is therefore beneficial to be able to evolve this important governance document as necessary.
