Welcome to Newham Central Primary Care Network

A collaboration of four GP practices serving approximately 63,000 patients from the Newham area.

PCNs will support each other while offering more specialist care services to patients and taking on a wider range of health professionals, such as:

  • Clinical pharmacists, who can make sure patients’ medications are right
  • Nurse practitioners, who can see and treat patients independently
  • Physiotherapists, to help with recovery and mobility
  • Paramedics, who can provide urgent care at the surgery
  • Physician associates, who can, for example, take medical histories and blood pressures, complete insurance forms and explain treatments, freeing up the GP
  • Social prescribing support workers, to help address non-clinical issues such as isolation and provide a more-holistic approach to care

This approach is designed to free up time for GPs, so they can focus more on supporting patients with the greatest needs and the most-complex conditions.
