A Primary Care Network (PCN) can be comprised of one clinic with many physicians and support staff, or several physicians in several clinics across a region. Other health care professionals such as pharmacists, dietitians, exercise specialists, mental health professionals and others work closely with family doctors to enhance primary care services for patients. Each network has the flexibility to develop programs and to provide services in a way that works locally to meet the specific needs of patients. Priority services provided by this PCN include palliative care (care for the terminally ill).
See website for a list of clinics included in this Primary Care Network.
