Primary Care Network


Due to changes in the GP Contract, groups of practices are now working together - typically covering between 30-50 thousand patients in an area.
Primary Care Networks build on a core of current primary care services and enable greater provison of proactive, personalised, co-ordinated and more integrated health and social care services.

Primary Care Networks provide the basis for future collaboration with other providers (eg Community Trusts) where appropriate, and will work together to deliver specific packages of care.

The Health & Lifestyle Practitioners are non-clinical practitioners located within your GP practice who can support patients with making positive lifestyle changes including improving diet and increasing physical activity levels. The Health & Lifestyle Practitioners focus on the prevention of conditions such as Cardiovascular Disease and Type 2 Diabetes.

Social Prescribing chat

Social Prescribing and community-based support is a key component of personalised care and is part of the NHS Long Term Plan.

Social Prescribing enables GP practices to refer patients to a range of services that offer support for social, emotional or practical needs. Through a link worker, social prescribing connects patients to community groups and services.

Social Prescribing is an all-age, whole population approach that works particularly well for people who:

  • Have one or more long-term conditions
  • Need support with low-level mental health issues
  • Are lonely or isolated
  • Have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing

Fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) is a non-invasive biomarker used in the diagnosis and management of airway inflammation, particularly in asthma. It measures the concentration of nitric oxide (NO) gas in the exhaled breath, which is produced by various cells in the respiratory tract, including epithelial cells, eosinophils, and macrophages.

The test is simple and easy to do and, alongside other diagnostic tests, can tell you and your asthma team what type of asthma you have

A FeNO test is suitable for adults and most children over five.

Full details of FeNO testing is available on the PCN wesbite and appointments can be arranged through the GP practice.

Menopause marks the end of a woman's reproductive years and is characterised by the cessation of menstrual periods. It typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, although the exact timing varies for each individual. Hormonal changes, specifically a decline in estrogen and progesterone production, lead to various physical and psychological symptoms. Understanding these changes and their implications is essential for women approaching or experiencing menopause.

To arrange an appointment please contact the Practice requesting a referral to the Menopause Clinic. An appointment will be arranged for a blood test. Once your results are available the GP will review these. You will then receive a text message/phone call to arrange your initial appointment.

An extensive mental health portal on the PCN website details the wide-ranging mental health services available for patients.

To arrange an appointment please contact the Practice requesting a referral to the Musculoskeletal (MSK) Clinic. An appointment will be arranged for you to see the GP. The GP will assess you and an appointment will be arranged if appropriate for you to be seen by this service. Please visit the PCN website for full details of the service and clinic times

Full information is available on the PCN website.

Spirometry is a simple, non-invasive procedure and common diagnostic test used to assess lung function and detect various respiratory conditions, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pulmonary fibrosis. It does so by measuring the volume and flow of air that a person can inhale and exhale. During a spirometry test, a patient breathes into a device called a spirometer, which measures the volume and flow of air expelled from the lungs.

If you feel you have breathing problems please contact the practice to make an appointment with a clinician to plan the best way forward for you.
