COVID-19: Supporting PCNs

Red sign displaying coronavirus outbreak

The pressures on PCNs are unrelenting during the response to COVID-19. The PCN Network is here to support you. 

We have set up a regionally representative board of clinical directors to support us in this work. We are gathering PCN intelligence and discussing concerns regularly with NHS England and NHS Improvement (vaccine supply and lateral testing), as well as with key stakeholders and partners, such as the Care Quality Commission and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

We are also publishing guidance for PCNs and we have a regular bulletin, exclusively for PCN teams, to keep you informed of need-to-know information and developments. The NHS Confederation's COVID-19 hub also provides insights on the latest developments and where to find information.

We are also raising your views and concerns publicly in our media work


How can we help?

If you feel the PCN Network can offer support, by sharing good practice or lobbying nationally, please do get in touch. Equally if you wish to share your examples of local progress/innovation, we would are keen to hear from you:
