Transforming Healthcare in Salford South East

In January 2019, NHS England asked all GP practices across the UK to form a local Primary Care Network (PCN) with neighbouring surgeries.

Your GP, Pendleton Medical Centre, joined Salford South East PCN to work with other health, social care and voluntary organisations to improve patient services. You may already have benefited from these services during this time, so we want to introduce ourselves and tell you more about our work.

Introducing Salford South East PCN

Salford South East Primary Care Network is one of the five PCNs in Salford and includes 10 GPs with a population of 83,500 patients.

The PCN supports and develops the work of current primary care services. So, for example, our GP practices have greater flexibility and control to provide more proactive, personalised and integrated health and social care at the right time and place.

What are the benefits to residents?

We know the challenges facing the healthcare system in the long term are significant. But, working together, we can offer increased access and specialised services closer to patients’ homes and without the need to go to the hospital.

Services such as:

  • Appointments with First Contact Practitioners, Social Prescribers, Mental Health Practitioners,
  • Pharmacists and Care co-ordinators
  • Additional capacity for GP and nurse appointments with local overflow hub
  • Access to GP and nurse appointments, which includes evening and weekend availability, such as cervical smear and blood tests
  • PCN GP practices working together to deliver the COVID-19 and Flu vaccine
