Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Primary Care Networks are groups of GP practices working closely together – along with other healthcare staff and organisations – providing integrated services to the local population.

From the 1st of July 2019, all patients in England are covered by a Primary Care Network (PCN). A PCN is made up of neighbouring GP Practices who have decided to work together to provide and improve healthcare services in the local area.  The video to the left details what a Primary Care Network (PCN) has been designed to achieve.

South Blaby & Lutterworth PCN is a network of practices covering parts of Blaby, Countesthorpe and Lutterworth. The PCN consist of 5 GP practices in South Leicestershire who are working collaboratively with other local organisations to provide clear information about a range of health-related services available in the area, as well as providing national resources to enable you to learn more about your diagnosis.

This website aims to help you find reliable information and services which can help you get the support that is relevant to you. We aim to build this information source over time.

If you are looking for specific information about your practice, you may still need to visit their website. We have tried to include information and FAQs relevant to all 5 practices on our website, but you may find more information on your practice website.
