Estate of the future: PCN Estates Toolkit launch – with CHP and NHSEI

Thursday 11 November, 13:00

NAPC and CHP, on behalf of NHSEI, have produced a PCN Estates Toolkit to provide PCNs with a flexible framework and support process for producing robust primary care investment plans with clear priorities that align to wider ICS strategies.

The toolkit has been developed from the published guidance; Primary Care Networks: Critical thinking in developing an estate strategy, into practical tools for use and application. It is a practical ‘how to’ guide to help primary care networks (PCNs) start work on developing their premises so they’re able to provide integrated, community-based health and care well into the future. Its purpose is to support PCNs in delivering expanded services and new ways of integrated working to realise the ambitions of the NHS Long Term Plan.

The launch for the PCN Toolkit is approaching and interest is rising. Due to demand, we are hosting a live session to introduce the PCN Toolkit.
