New networks of primary, community, social care and mental health care teams are being developed, called Primary Care Networks (PCNs). Our STP has successfully bid for £535,000 in national funding to develop Primary Care Networks. Watch the video
The map below shows the geographic area that each PCN will cover. In the NHS, these geographic areas are referred to as 'neighbourhoods'. So, for example, there would be one Primary Care Network in south Waveney, one in King's Lynn etc.
The aim is to improve care and health for the population at this 'neighbourhood' level, to help people stay safe and well at home and make primary care more resilient. Using data on the health of their local population, they will work together to design and provide services to meet the health and care needs of people living there.
In the map above, there are four 'neighbourhoods' in each area served by an NHS Clinical Commissioning Group. In these geographical areas (which the NHS calls 'places') GP practices have come together to form "GP Provider Organisations" (GPPOs). They are all working to develop services across their area. The 5 GPPOs are:
