Sedgefield North Primary Care Network (PCN)
PCNs are groups of GP practices working closely together with other primary and community care staff and health and care organisation to provide integrated services to their local populations. These networks have been established to help deliver the NHS Long Term Plan.
PCNs will focus on the health needs of their particular patient population using information provided by Public Health, CCGs and from GP clinical systems. Over the next five years PCNs will employ additional staff to provide a wider range of services for their patients either at their GP practice or nearby. PCNs will work more closely with community services to support patients who need more than just health care.
Our PCN is Sedgefield North and the Clinical Director is Dr Matt Shield. Our PCN consists of some 56,000 patients from the following Practices: St Andrew’s Medical Practice, Bishop Close Medical Practice, Ferryhill & Chilton Medical Practice, Skerne Medical Group, West Cornforth Medical Practice.
