PCNs ‘in danger of folding’ over concerns about care home services


In our area most practices are joining on the premise that is ‘better to be in than out’ and to ‘shape services’. Ignoring the fact that the DES are suffocatingly prescriptive; ignoring the fact that the proposed funding is woeful; ignoring the fact that workloads are untenable prior to this addition; ignoring independent BBOLMC projections. Hard to fathom. In it’s current form, the PCN project cannot possibly succeed and I look forward to it’s slow and inevitable putrification.
