Primary Care Network  

The Primary Care Network (PCN) is a network of General Practitioners (GPs), supported by nurse counsellors and care coordinators, which provides step-by-step care for patients with chronic condition(s) such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. BENEFITS OF PCN Patients will have a personalised medical care plan to better manage their chronic condition(s). There will be closer monitoring and better care as patient’s case will be managed by a dedicated health care team comprised GPs, nurse counsellors and care coordinators. Patients also get to enjoy more convenience as they can choose to see a PCN GP near them. 


PATIENTS-CENTRED CARE: HOW DOES PCN WORK?

 


Services Provided by PCN GPs 

• Diabetic Foot Screening: As part of holistic chronic disease management, diabetic patients will be scheduled for periodic foot screening to identify any diabetic-related foot issues that can lead to amputations, if not well taken care of. Advice on proper foot care and footwear will also be provided. 

• Diabetic Retinal Photography: The PCN coordinator will help to coordinate periodic DRP screenings for diabetic patients through service providers such as Community Health Centres (CHCs) to enable early detection of any diabetic-related eye conditions. This will ensure early intervention which will reduce the risk of complications that can lead to blindness. 

• Nurse Counselling & Education: Patients can learn more about their condition(s) from the nurse counsellors, who will provide patients with personalised advice on positive lifestyle changes and empower patients to self-manage their condition(s).
