A message from our Business Partner & PCN Lead Practice Manager

The past year within West Leeds PCN has seen all the practices continue to work closely together to achieve our PCN contracts, building on cohesive relationships that began back in 2019. We are constantly looking for opportunities to support practices and have established PCN led NHS Health Check clinics, Learning Disability Health Check Clinics and annual reviews in care homes.  We have continued to prioritise practice resilience at the same time as the highest quality holistic patient care and have put many steps in place to realise this.  Our in house Booking and Administration team diverts telephone contact and repetitive administrative tasks from practices, centralising this function within the PCN.  We have also given serious consideration to the precarious nature of practice funding streams and as a result we have been able to devolve some elements of PCN funding back down to practices where an internal Resilience and Collaboration agreement is in place. 

We are fiercely proud of what we have achieved for our community in West Leeds and in particular of the ethical and proactive way in which we have conducted ourselves. West Leeds PCN is a dynamic and effective organisation that will always do what is does “because it is the right thing to do”
