CCGs urged to support PCNs and practices as coronavirus guidance published

Ruth Rankine

Responding to NHS England and NHS Improvement’s primary care coronavirus guidance published today, Ruth Rankine, director of the NHS Confederation’s PCN Network, and Julie Wood, chief executive of NHS Clinical Commissioners, said:

“We welcome greater clarity for Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and general practice. This guidance goes some way to providing reassurance on the flexibilities that are available although much of this is already happening.

“Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) must now ensure they are supporting their PCNs and practices. The need is now even greater for direct connection and support between CCGs and primary care, in both communication and planning.”

Notes to editors:

A joint briefing will be shared with members of both the PCN Network and NHS Clinical Commissioners today about the contents of this guidance
