PCN support

Local support and expertise

A pivotal part of our role is to support our Primary Care Networks.

Together we want to achieve our shared ambitions and create an integrated health programme with tangible results. The support we provide PCNs is varied and far-reaching, and is provided at cost to secure vital cost-savings.

Our network coordinators work collaboratively with each of our PCNs to understand their individual needs and create a bespoke level of support for them all.

  • Administrative support

    Each PCN has access to the support of a dedicated ABC admin team member. Assistance ranges from producing agendas and minute taking as well as Clinical Director support.

  • Communications support

    We have developed a package that aims to help PCNs and Practices to create a professional and consistent approach to their communications. From logo creation and brand guidelines to establishing a social media presence and website development, we can create a suite of support tailored to your needs.

  • Employment support

    All our PCNs are supported by the ABC admin team and Network Development Manager. Our team are able to work closely with Clinical Directors and Practice Managers pulling together job specs, advertising roles, interviewing candidates and supporting HR administrative requirements.

  • Financial management

    We can offer comprehensive support via our team of Management Accountants and Bookkeepers. We are able to assist with budgeting, forecasting, profit and loss reporting, ARRS claims and much more.

  • Project management

    We have a full service offering that ranges from project scoping, writing of bids, establishing delivery group, project planning, financial tracking, reporting and implementation.

  • Leadership development

    We recognise that each of us has a unique mix of inherent qualities that affect the way we approach our work and any new challenges we may face. With this in mind, we have developed a coaching service that helps you to determine your particular mix of strengths and weaknesses, and the role that you play in the new integrated world of the NHS.

  • Strategic support

    Achieving a clear vision for your practices is crucial in order to make decisions on staffing, services and increasingly involvement in your PCN. Sometimes practices need a little help to understand their objectives and create appropriate and effective strategies to achieve them.
