Primary Care Networks
Primary Care Networks are groups of GP practices working closely together with other primary and community care staff and health and care organisations to provide integrated services to their local populations. These networks have been established to help deliver the NHS Long Term Plan.
Haringey's Primary Care Networks were launched on Monday 1 July 2019.
There will be eight Primary Care Networks in Haringey. Each network has appointed a clinical director, and, during 2019/20, will have access to funding for a clinical pharmacist and a social prescribing link worker, followed by funding for other roles from 2021 onwards.
As a patient you will remain registered at your local practice, be able to see a GP as before, use the same telephone number and access the same health and care services.
Detailed below are the population sizes and Clinical Directors for each network. You can also download a map of Haringey's Primary Care Networks here.
