Clinical directors attempting to divide their time between their PCN and clinical roles face an uphill struggle unless they delegate some of the work. PCC has a network of experienced project managers with primary care backgrounds who can help with planning, relationship management, workforce, finance and operational issues.

“Primary care networks are expected to have a transformational effect on primary care services. It’s hard to imagine how they’ll pull that off unless they can also transform their premises and estates. And right now that’s one of the biggest challenges facing PCNs.”
So says Mike Simpson, primary care premises and finance adviser with PCC.
A few PCNs are getting involved in integrated care planning, but many are still working on their own relationships. At this early stage, that's just as it should be, argues Robert McGough, a healthcare lawyer with Hill Dickinson.
Everyone needs support and advice to make the best of their role, particularly those living through periods of change or taking on new responsibilities. PCC’s adviser team can provide one-to-one support to commissioners who may be considering difficult primary care contractual issues such as primary care premises or dispensing practice matters.

PCC offers support and development services in each of the domains of the maturity matrix, which describes the domains in which networks will need to develop to fulfil their potential. Our services help emerging networks to meet the criteria set out in the forthcoming network dashboard, which will help PCNs to meet the forthcoming service specifications.
