Medway Rainham Primary Care Network (PCN)

Primary care services are the first point of contact in the healthcare system, acting as the ‘front door’ to the NHS. These services include: GPs, community pharmacies, dental care and eye health services.

What is a primary care network (PCN)?

A primary care network consists of groups of general practices working together, and in partnership with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local area, to offer more personalised, coordinated health and social care to the people living in their area.

There are 42 PCNs in Kent and Medway and the majority of networks serve between 30,000 to 50,000 patients. Networks will be aligned to their regional integrated care partnership – this will support them to work more closely with other health and care partners in the area.

There are nine primary care networks in Medway and Swale, made up of 57 GP practices.

Medway Rainham Primary Care Network is made up of the following 9 GP practices:-

  • Church View Practice
  • Eastcourt Lane Surgery
  • Long Catlis Road Surgery
  • Maidstone Road (Rainham) Surgery
  • Orchard Family Practice
  • Parkwood Family Practice
  • Thames Avenue Surgery
  • Waltham Road Surgery
  • Wigmore Medical Centre

These 9 GP practices have been working collaboratively together since July 2019. Our vision is to ‘share best practice and make meaningful changes together so that we can give better care to our patients’.

This is an organisation while continuing to provide the usual GP services for our respective patients would work to co-ordinate activities around patients groups requiring continued care. We hope to work with wider group of authorised providers where necessary to improve patients care pathways.

We are determined to focus on our population health and support prevention activities which includes Covid Vaccination Programme.

We hope to communicate our extended organisation’s mutual development through this medium going forward.
