Stalybridge, Dukinfield and Mossley Primary Care Network (PCN)

What is a Primary Care Network (PCN)?

PCNs are a group of GP practices that work together with other healthcare staff to provide integrated services to the local population. PCNs can be seen as an extension of your GP practice and the services that are offering through the PCN are designed to complement the GP practice and secondary care offerings. 

What does our PCN offer?

In Stalybridge, Dukinfield and Mossley we have an established PCN hub located at on the 1st floor of St Andrews House, Waterloo Road, Stalybridge, SK15 2AU. Please be aware that the 1st floor is completely separate to the St Andrews House GP surgery - the floor is rented specifically to the PCN. 

At the PCN hub there are a variety of available services such as:

4 x Musculoskeletal Practitioners (MSK) - these clinicians are expects in joints and muscles and are the first port of call for any such problems.

1 x Adult Mental Health Nurses 

1 x Paramedics - our paramedics are use to conduct house bound visits for acute problems and manage our frequent attenders scheme

The Complex Care Team - our complex care team manage the care of our over 65 and moderately to severely frail population as well as assisting with our care homes and dementia care. 

1 x Wellbeing Coordinator - offering lifestyle and weight management advice

1 x Cancer Care Coordinator 

1 x Social Prescriber

1 x Physician Associate - Our physician associate works under the guidance of our GPs to take clinical observations and manage minor ailments. They are not currently able to prescribe and therefore any prescriptions requests will be directed to the practice GPs.  

Extended Hours 

Our PCN also runs our extended hours programme where we offer GP, Healthcare Assistant and Nursing appointments. The clinicians working in extended access are mostly from our local practices and will be able to access your GP records the same as seeing a clinician in the surgery - just at a different site. Extended hours run from 18:30 - 20:00 every weeknight and 09:00 - 17:00 every saturday *Excluding bank holidays* 

Additional Services

The PCN also run ad-hoc clinics in and out of normal working hours such as NHS health check clinics, smear clinics and flu vaccines.
