Get involved and shape the futureIt is not within our gift to be able to form 32 PCN groups across our area but it is our responsibility to help you do so. We are seeking to provide you with the opportunity, resources and support to complete this important work and to prosper in the PCN environment in the future.We know that there are overwhelming demands on your time and we hope to help alleviate some of the pressure rather than add to it. It is not obligatory for you to be involved in PCN formation but your enthusiasm for getting involved and even taking the lead locally will make a difference.If you have any queries or questions relating to PCN Formation please get in touch at office@pharmacylancashire.org.
