What is a PCN?

warwickshire east

Dene and Stour Valleys Primary Care Network was set up to serve our 3 Warwickshire practices. The purpose of Dene and Stour Valleys Primary Care Network is to encourage closer working between practices, local community services, charities and the voluntary sector.  By working at scale and in partnership we can offer additional services to our patients and provide resilience and support to our practices. Over the last two years we have introduced Clinical Pharmacists, Social Prescribers, Care-coordinators, Diagnostic Physiotherapists, Health and Wellbeing coaches. We hope to continue to add to our teams and services to give our patients the best possible care in these challenging times.

Our 3 practices include Meon Medical Centre, Shipston Medical Centre and Hastings House Medical Centre.

What is a PCN?

A primary care network is a collaboration between general practices to offer more personalised, coordinated health and social care to our local practice populations. Our Network covers just over 30,000 patients small enough to maintain the traditional strengths of general practice but at the same time large enough to provide resilience and support the development of integrated team’s local populations.

We want to support patients to make informed decisions about their health care and to connect them to most appropriate health or social care provider to ensure health care that is timely safe and all encompassing.
