PCN UPDATE

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 those needs, GP Practices are working together in the community to provide additional services. The groups of GPs working in this way are called Primary Care Networks (PCNs). The practices in each PCN work together to deliver core requirements and also offer additional roles that are provided in each Practice. These roles include: Pharmacists, Social Prescribers, Occupational therapists, Dietitians, Physiotherapists, Paramedics and others. 

Currently Northlands Wood Practice is part of Haywards Heath Central PCN along with Newtons and Dolphins Practices. We would like to let our patients know that we have made an application to our Local Clinical Commissioning group (CCG) to move PCNs and begin working collaboratively with Haywards Heath Villages PCN. This PCN includes Cuckfield and the Vale Practice, Lindfield Medical Centre and Ouse Valley Practice. 

We would like to reassure our patients that this will not affect our core general practice patient care and that we will continue to offer the additional roles within our Practice. If you have any queries regarding this, then please do not hesitate to contact the Practice directly.
