South East London carer

What's Changed?

Primary care networks (PCNs) have been introduced to south east London. These networks connect practitioners with community services, social care and other providers of health and care services to provide better support and care to local patients.

This means your primary care team is part of a wide network of practitioners and specialists dedicated to ensuring you and the person you are caring for receive the best care possible. These changes allow patients to receive the support and care required from different professionals in your community, whilst freeing up doctors’ time to help treat the sickest patients.

As part of this, we are making better uses of digital technology to improve patient outcomes. This includes using digital and phone consultations, helping you see a professional sooner and means your primary care team can help more people in your community.
