Workforce considerations for Primary Care Networks

The Government has announced that all GP practices in England will have the opportunity to join a Primary Care Network (PCN) by 1 July 2019.

One of the incentives for participating in a PCN is that practices will be able to benefit from the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme which was announced in the 2019 GP Contract Framework. Under this scheme, additional funding will be made available to PCNs to reimburse 70% of the employment costs for clinical pharmacists, physician associates, first contact physiotherapists and first contact community paramedics and 100% of the employment costs of social prescribing link workers, up to the relevant maximum amounts.
