GP services across the East Berkshire, Surrey Heath and North East Hampshire and Farnham have formed local ‘Primary Care Networks’ to improve the services they provide to their patients.

The networks, or PCNs, were established across the Frimley Health and Care Integrated Care System on July 1. 

Primary Care Networks will support groups of practices to come together locally, in partnership with community services, social care and other providers of health and care services.

There are 14 Primary Care Networks across the Frimley Health and Care. North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) area is made up of five networks. There is one in Surrey Heath CCG and eight in East Berkshire CCG. See the network areas and member practices here

These networks will offer care on a scale which is small enough for patients to get the continuous and personalised care they value, but large enough – in their partnership with others in the local health and care system – to be resilient.

In their first year, Primary Care Networks will focus on establishing their foundations, including developing a wider set of roles to support care needs and closer working with other local partners.

To view all of the networks across Frimley Health and Care in more detail including names, sizes and practices see our Primary Care Network map.
