Burmantofts, Harehills and Richmond Hill PCN is a network of practices with a common goal of improving the health of our local population.
Our vision is to collaborate for the benefit of our patients. Informed by data; work to reduce inequalities, enable practices to be sustainable and make a positive difference to our patients lives.
Message from Our Clinical Director
As a GP Partner that has worked in the community for a number of years, I seek to understand the needs of the communities that live in the area and advocate for the patients within the PCN. I am passionate about reducing health inequalities and believe that social status should not be a barrier to good health. As a team we prioritise working with practices whilst always being aware of our patients and the lives that they live.
Primary Care Networks came in to being in July 2019. We have a Network Members Board that meet alternate months to oversee the strategy of the PCN. We have a Strategic Board (Leadership Team) which is made of clinical and managerial representation. They make decisions as to how the strategy is put in place. All of our 12 practices are represented, usually by the Practice Manager, and come together at our monthly PCN Members meeting. This is where we discuss operational activity and this structure is how the PCN is governed.
At the heart of what we do are the people who work with us. They will share our desire to achieve the best outcomes for our patients and will respect differences. We have developed clinical governance to assure our partners and patients that all PCN workers share the aim to improve and achieve good clinical outcomes. As the team continues to grow this is ever more important to allow our partners to have trust in what we do.
We will always face challenges but a clear strategy of working together in a patient centred manner will give us the best chance of success.
