Have your say on the success of PCNs and you could win a £200 voucher

Pulse and its sister publications have launched a survey to gather views on the success of the PCN model following the end of the initial five-year contract.

The State of Primary Care survey asks GPs and clinical directors how big changes to the healthcare landscape – the launch of PCNs in 2019 and the establishment of integrated care systems in 2022 – have impacted primary care.

Specifically, the survey seeks views from GPs on how the introduction of the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) has impacted on their workload and patients.

GPs will also be asked for their views on what a new government’s priorities for the NHS should be ahead of the general election.

Healthcare Leader and Pulse PCN editor Victoria Vaughan said: ‘Primary care has seen massive changes over the last five years and this survey aims to hear from those working in this sector about the impact they have had.

‘Although integrated care boards have been up and running for nearly two years they are under intense financial pressure which impinges on opportunities to support changes in primary care. Added to that, the demise of the clinical commissioning groups has left some primary care leaders feeling the voice of this sector in the system is diminished.

‘We hope this survey provides the opportunity to have your voice heard ahead of any future changes a new government may seek to make.’

Participating GPs will not be quoted by name, or by any identifiable details, without express consent.

The results will be used in our reporting and across our healthcare media brands.
