Weekly Update

How your local Primary Care Network (PCN) can help you

Many people are living with long term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease or suffer with mental health issues and may need to access their local health services more often.

To meet these needs, GP practices are working together with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in groups of practices known as primary care networks (PCNs).

PCNs build on existing primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care for people close to home. Clinicians describe this as a change from reactively providing appointments to proactively caring for the people and communities they serve.

Calderdale has 5 Primary Care Networks covering North Halifax, Central Halifax, Calder & Ryburn, Lower Valley and Upper Valley. Sign up below to find out more about the networks and what they do here in Calderdale.

Subscribe to the PCN Newsletter here: https://mailchi.mp/3b38b4413cba/calderdale-primary-care-network-e-newsletter

There is currently a facebook page for the Calder and Ryburn PCN, please visit us: https://www.facebook.com/Calder.Ryburn.PCN

Calder and Ryburn Primary Care Network includes Station Road Surgery in Sowerby Bridge, Bankfield Surgery in Elland, Brig Royd Surgery in Ripponden and Stainland Road Medical Centre in Greetland.  Follow us on
