Primary Care Networks (PCNs)
The PSNC have produced a briefing for all pharmacy staff, click on this link pcn-briefing-for-pharmacy-teams
On the day of the declaration, the pharmacy must be able to demonstrate that their pharmacy, and all of the other pharmacies within the PCN footprint who wish to engage with a PCN, have agreed a collaborative approach to engaging with their PCN. This approach must include agreement on a single channel of communication by appointing a named lead representative for all of the community pharmacies who wish to engage with their PCN in the PCN footprint. The Pharmacy PCN Lead must have provided their name to the Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC) in which the PCN lies and must have demonstrable evidence that they have started the engagement process with the PCN, i.e. they have made initial contact with the Clinical Director for the PCN either by contacting them through correspondence (post/email) or by arranging a meeting with them or by meeting them.
The LPC has been working hard behind the scenes to map all pharmacies with a PCN. To view which PCN your pharmacy is mapped to please click here pcn pharmacies and lead
