Rural Alliance Primary Care Network in West Cheshire
What is the Rural Alliance Primary Care Network in West Cheshire? But first what is Primary Care and what is a Primary Care Network?
Primary Care is the terminology used by the NHS for the first point of contact in the heath care system. NHS primary care therefore includes medical general practice i.e. the Kelsall Medical Centre and its doctors and nurses.
Primary Care Network
Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a new development by the NHS in which adjacent medical general practices work together to offer enhanced medical services and support.
Our Rural Alliance
For us the Primary Care Network (PCN) consists of the medical practices at Kelsall, Tarporley, Bunbury, Tattenhall and Malpas. Our PCN is called the Rural Alliance PCN for obvious reasons.
By working together and using new NHS funding our Rural Alliance PCN in West Cheshire will soon provide enhanced medical support in areas such as physiotherapy, pharmacy review and social prescribing.
