What is a Primary Care Network?

From 1st July 2019, all patients in England are covered by a Primary Care Network (PCN). A PCN is made up of neighbouring GP Practices who have decided to work together to provide and improve healthcare services in the local area.  The video below details what a Primary Care Network (PCN) has been designed to achieve.  

The Tolson Care Partnership Primary Care Network (Tolson PCN) is based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, and we are made up of eight GP surgeries, with a combined patient list size of approximately 50,000. If you are a patient of The Waterloo Practice, The Whitehouse Centre, The University Health Centre, The Almondbury Surgery, Dalton Surgery, Greenhead Family Doctors, The Junction Surgery or Rose Medical Practice you are covered by Tolson PCN.

Our PCN is made up of a board with representatives from our participating practices. Our Network's Clinical Director is Dr Sarah Milligan, she is our PCN leader and is based at The Whitehouse Centre. She is supported by our leadership group made up of representative clinical and non-clinical staff from the other practices. See our Membership section for more information.
