Primary Care Networks
Next Steps for Pharmacies in GST

Good Afternoon

This message is for all Pharmacies in Gateshead & South Tyneside


As you will recall, the LPC ran an engagement event in October at which we explored the development of primary care networks (PCNs) throughout our patch. 

Following the event, we asked contractors to confirm the PCN in which they felt most comfortable within. Most Pharmacies fit nicely into one of the networks based on the  majority of their prescription volume, although for some it was more difficult to sort out. Some contractors have not yet ratified their PCN, please check the list on the LPC Website and let us know which Network you wish to be involved with. . Those who have responded already are listed below.

We also asked contractors to put themselves forward for election as PCN lead. This lead will liaise with other pharmacy members of the PCN, the LPC and the clinical director of the network itself.

The LPC had 2 unopposed nomination forms submitted within the time-frame for 2 of the 8 PCNs within our locality.

At the LPC meeting held on 21/11/19 these forms were validated and accepted.

Consequently the PCN leads for these 2 PCNs have been duly elected without a vote.


The names of these 2 leads are indicated next to the relevant PCN below.

Also at the LPC meeting on 21/11/19, the LPC agreed to support the development of PCNs throughout Gateshead and South Tyneside by appointing LPC support officers for each network and these people are also indicted below.

For the two PCNs with elected leads, your lead will be in touch shortly to invite you to a meeting to consider the next steps.

For the 6 PCNs without a lead, the LPC support officer will act as interim lead and invite you to a meeting to consider the next steps including the formal election of a lead within your PCN.

The LPC would like to remind contractors that engaging with PCN's is a part of the PQS and as such if you do not engage you can not claim the associated points and fees.
