Primary Care Network

Our team of clinical pharmacists and pharmacy technicians support GP practices and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) to deliver national NHS service specifications and extended or urgent care. Our team can support PCNs with medicines strategy development, additional professional staff capacity, analysis and interpretation of prescribing data to support with locally identified priorities, improve QOF/IIF and local DES/LES achievement, improve patient medicines safety, and provide training for their teams.

We offer a bespoke service approach for PCNs including:

  • Expert supervision and monitoring: mentoring, coaching and leadership
  • Specialised clinical pharmaceutical support: senior pharmacist oversight, line management, work plan development and monitoring, clinical governance
  • Strategic planning: delivery support for GP contracts, CQC standards, clinical audits and safety reviews
  • Networking and learning: clinical peer support, intervention recording, Medicines Safety Assurance Tool (MSAT)
  • Workforce recruitment support: pharmacist/pharmacy technician induction planning
  • Training Programme: bespoke training plans, annual personal development planning (PDP)
  • Workforce Solutions: end-to-end PCN Clinical Pharmacist Service, additional capacity, and project support
  • End-to-end Medicines Optimisation in Care Homes (MOCH) Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician support

We have years of experience in working within primary care and understand how pharmacists and technicians can best support PCNs, patients, and the NHS.
