City South Primary Care Network
Primary Care Networks, also referred to as PCNs, bring together a group of GP practices which are situated in a similar location, and encourage them to work collaboratively. The networks urge the GPs to work closely with other healthcare services, community groups, social care, and other voluntary sectors to better care for the needs of patients within that specific area. PCN working is something that is happening all over England.
Grange Farm Medical Centre work with 3 local GP practices, and this forms the City South PCN. These other practices are Deer Park Family Medical Practice, Wollaton Park Medical Centre and Derby Road Medical Centre.
City South PCN covers Wollaton and parts of Lenton, Radford and Bilborough to the west of Nottingham city. Although they are still all independently owned practices, they work together to share resources and improve the areas health and social care.
