Shakeup for GP surgeries next month: find out which new network your practice joins

Shakeup for GP surgeries next month: find out which new network your practice joins GP surgeries across Northamptonshire will launch new networks next month in the biggest shake-up of primary care services in 15 years.

Sixteen new networks across Northamptonshire will launch from July 1 with some surgeries joining alliances with practices from neighbouring towns.

The new primary care networks – which are part of the NHS 10-year plan – will each have a pharmacist and a new position of social prescriber. These will be professionals who will link up patients with services from the voluntary sector that may boost their health or mental wellbeing, such as walking groups or social clubs.
