The web pages in this section are currently being re-developed.
Apologies for any gaps in information during this process.
You can still view the GP practice lists with further details here.
Primary Care Networks (or PCNs) are GP practices working together. In north Cumbria our PCNs are part of Integrated Care Communities (ICCs) which brings together community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital, third sector and voluntary services in their local areas.
PCNs build on existing primary care services and helps Practices support their patients with some shared back room services to work more efficiently.
We have 8 PCNs working collaboratively covering north Cumbria. This has been particularly important during covid when teams have supported each other and worked together on the vaccine programme. This collaboration is continuing and growing.
Our PCNs want to develop more proactive, personalised, integrated health and social care for people close to home.
