Selby Town PCN

Selby Town Primary Care Network (PCN) has teamed up with neighbouring surgeries who will be working together to improve health and social care services and providing more of them closer to home.

The PCN is made up of four surgeries including:

The Selby Town PCN looks after a population of 49,792 people covering over 180 square miles.

This more joined up approach means that, over time, you may have easier access to things like a clinical pharmacist, physiotherapist, community mental health team, paramedic, care home nurse or social prescriber. They will be on hand to help with a wide range of social, emotional, mental health and wellbeing issues.

The Selby Town PCN is led by Dr Nick Jackson, Clinical Director and he is supported by GP Leads in each practice.

Local Priorities

  • Frailty 
  • Mental health including dementia
  • long term conditions
