Primary Care Networks

Since the NHS was created in 1948, the population has grown and people are living longer. Many people are living with long term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, or suffer with mental health issues and may need to access their local health services more often.

To meet these needs, GP practices have begun working together and with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in primary care networks.

There are six Primary Care Networks (PCNs) within the NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group.

1. Selby Town 

2. Tadcaster & Selby 

3. South Hambleton & Ryedale 

4. York City Centre 

5. York Medical Group 

6. Nimbuscare Ltd (a single PCN with 3 sub-PCNs)

Primary care networks build on the core of current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. Clinicians describe this as a change from reactively providing appointments to proactively care for the people and communities they serve. Where emerging primary care networks are in place in parts of the country, there are clear benefits for patients and clinicians.
