Primary Care Network update and mapping of community pharmacies

Primary Care Network update and mapping of community pharmacies

September 8, 2020

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan, with all general practices required to be in a network by June 2019, and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) being required to commit recurrent funding to develop and maintain them.

You will also be aware that as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework settlement 2019/20 – 2023-34 there has been mention of integration with PCNs included within transitional payments and a standalone criteria within the Pharmacy Quality Scheme.

The LPC has updated its mapping in August 2020 and now includes Community Pharmacy PCN Leads (where they are known) and GP practices within the PCN.

Each pharmacy has only been assigned to one PCN. Please note this is not a definitive list and we would encourage you to review where your community pharmacy has been placed within this list. If you believe your pharmacy  would be better placed within another PCN please email as soon as possible and we will update the list.
