About Us


Beckenham has six GP practices who work together with other Bromley-based health and social care providers to form Beckenham PCN.

Led by our Clinical Directors, we work collaboratively to improve and personalise patient care across our 6 practices.

What is a Primary Care Network?

A Primary Care Network is a group of GP practices who work together with community, mental health, social care, and voluntary services in the local area, to provide comprehensive primary care services to a defined population.

PCNs build on existing primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, and coordinated health and social care for people close to home.

Over 99% of general practices are part of a PCN who sign up to the Network Contract DES which details our core requirements and entitlements.

What benefits do Primary Care Networks have for patients?

  • They offer a larger range of care services that well be close to patients' homes, as well as improved access
  • PCNs work with a wider range of health and community services, for example Bromley GP Alliance and Bromley Healthcare
  • Patients will be able to receive support for a more complicated conditions, and will have access to the health and care services that can support them
  • Patients will be able to have more of a role in making decisions around their own health and the care they receive

What can you expect from your PCN?

Additional healthcare professionals are being recruited to work on behalf of our Beckenham GP practices within the Primary Care Networks.  These roles include Clinical Pharmacists, Mental Health Practitioners, Podiatrists, and Social Prescribing Link Workers.  By introducing a greater skill mix, our patients will have greater access to the support they need to keep people healthy and independent.
