Primary Care Networks (PCNs) bring local physicians and other health care professionals together to provide comprehensive patient care to Albertans. PCNs are comprised of groups of family physicians working with other health care professionals such as nurses, nurse practitioners, dietitians, pharmacists, social workers and mental health professionals. PCNs develop solutions to meet the needs of the local community and their health issues. PCNs are created through an agreement between physicians and Alberta Health Services.
There are now 42 PCNs operating throughout Alberta with more than 3,700 family physicians, and more than 1,100 other health practitioners. At any given time there are hundreds of PCN family doctors accepting new patients. Research shows that patients who regularly visit a family doctor are healthier and live longer.
