Network Contract DES Additional Roles

Network Contract DES Additional Roles are new staff recruited by PCNs to deliver additional healthcare services.

These new roles work across practices as part of multidisciplinary teams, reducing pressure on GP staff and guaranteeing patients receive the holistic clinical and non-clinical care they need.

PCW is supporting practices in the recruitment, training and management of new PCN roles and teams.
