Pulse PCN Winter 2023

In this final print edition, Pulse PCN Winter 2023 looks at the work of digital and transformation leads and how PCNs are capitalising on the opportunities in this area despite a lack of guidance.

It highlights that there is much variation between PCNs in terms of approach, experience, and relationship with the wider NHS system at the integrated care board (ICB).

Columnist and chair of the NHS Confederation’s PCN advisory group, Professor Aruna Garcea, reflects on the rapid shift to at-scale working PCNs have brought about but questions if this has been enough.

And PCN of the Year award winner, Central Cheltenham PCN, shares how its network is proactively caring for patients.

Six GP and PCN leads from across the country joined editor Victoria Vaughan to discuss the cardiovascular disease (CVD) diagnosis and prevention service at the latest virtual roundtable and evaluate the impact of the Network DES on this area.

Elsewhere, medical executive lead for primary care at NHS Greater Manchester, Dr Tracey Vell, speaks with senior reporter Jess Hacker about covering the financial deficit.

Pulse PCN continues to provide news, views, insight and roundtables via our newly launched website.
