PCN Board Education

At Redmoor Health, we are dedicated to empowering PCN boards with the knowledge and strategies necessary for effective leadership and decision-making. Our PCN Board Education project aims to provide comprehensive education on key areas such as MGPA, PCARP, CAIP, and GP contracts, as well as strategic planning and quality improvement.

Why it's important

Educating PCN boards is crucial for achieving national targets, optimising funding use, and ensuring high-quality patient care. By enhancing the knowledge and strategic capabilities of board members, PCNs can better navigate the complexities of healthcare management and drive continuous improvement.
