Primary Care Network Workforce - 30 June 2020

NHS geography updates

There have been changes to the NHS England and Improvement regional structure since this release. From 1st July 2022, Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) were established as statutory bodies replacing CCGs and STPs. From the Primary Care Network Workforce, 30 June 2022 publication, data is instead aggregated to Sub-ICB Location, and ICB level. These geography updates also involved boundary changes, with some Primary Care Networks (PCNs) moving to different Sub-ICB Locations and ICBs than they would previously have been situated.

In order to have a consistent and comparable time series at regional level, Individual-level CSVs for all periods back to March 2020 were reproduced as part of the 30 June 2022 release, with PCNs and Sub-ICB Locations remapped to reflect this latest structure. National totals are unaffected by this remapping but some figures at Sub-ICB (previously CCG) and ICB (previously STP) levels may differ to those previously published.

The regional bulletin tables 2a and 2b presented here reflect the old structure. Therefore, users are encouraged to use the remapped CSV files released with the 30 June 2022 publication for historical regional primary care network workforce figures.

This is the second publication of information relating to the Primary Care Network (PCN) workforce and complements figures in the General Practice Workforce series of Official Statistics.

This report includes England-level and sub-national figures for Clinical Directors, Direct Patient Care and Admin/Non-Clinical staff working in PCNs at 30 June 2020.

In the first data collection in March 2020 we received data for 15% of active PCNs, for June 2020 this has increased to 40% of all active PCNs.
