PCN Clinical Director Survey Results

Publication date: October 2021

The LMC has published the results of our survey of PCN Clinical Directors which was conducted in August 2021. 

The survey was conducted to help us understand the situation on the frontline in primary care. We wanted to gain the insights of our area’s PCN leaders into how networks are developing, including additional roles recruitment, relationships with the wider NHS, and support needs.

Key findings from the survey: 

• The additional roles most recruited for have been Social Prescribers, Clinical Pharmacists, First Contact Physiotherapists and Pharmacy Technicians. 

• A lack of suitably qualified or experienced candidates was the most quoted barrier to recruiting for additional roles. 

• A lack of adequate premises was the most quoted barrier to future success for PCNs, followed by being able to recruit sufficient wider workforce. 

• Improved collaborative working with secondary care and developing relationships with stakeholders were the most requested areas for the LMC to develop to support PCNs. 

The responses will help the LMC plan how we can tailor support to ensure we meet the needs of PCNs, and in our discussions with healthcare leaders.
