Recruitment for PCNs – is it a problem?

A senior LMC official from north-east England said there was ‘next to zero chance’ that PCNs would be able to meet recruitment targets set by NHSE.

Recruitment is often difficult for the new roles as elsewhere in the system there are very similar roles plus some practices have already funded those roles. That’s not to suggest funding should be a free for all but a strong case for utilising funding in other workforce roles complementing what is already there and to build on further?

What’s your experience?
