The Valleys Health and Social Care Network

The Valleys Health and Social Care Network

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan. They provide the structure and funding for services to be developed locally, in response to the needs of the patients they serve. PCNs will help to join up services at a local level, focusing on the specific needs of these local populations, with patients still accessing routine GP appointments as they do now.

Six of the GP practices within Greater Huddersfield have joined together to form The Valleys Health and Social Care Network. They are; Meltham Group Practice, Slaithwaite Health Centre, Oaklands Health Centre, Elmwood Family Doctors, Colne Valley Group Practice and Honley Surgery. By being part of the PCN we have been enabled to devise and develop services that are tailored to the needs of our patient community. Our aim is that this will help to give you, our patients, better access to the right care and support, at the right time.

Map of the Valleys PCN Area

Our surgery teams are working closely with each other, enjoying the ability to share expertise and resources, to develop new services. Our vision is to continue to improve the quality of care that we provide in alignment with the need of our patient population.

Details of our PCN Staff can be found in our PCN Staff section here.

What are Primary Care Networks?

PCNs build on current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. Clinicians describe this as a change from reactively providing appointments to proactively providing care for the people and communities they serve. PCNs are providing clear benefits for patients and clinicians. PCNs usually have a 30-50k population and are geographically contiguous (next to or touching another). All GP practices in our area have signed up to be a member of a PCN.  You can read the NHS England PCN FAQs here and view the BMA PCN handbook (March 2019) here.
