Primary Care Network Durham

Primary Care Network (PCN) Durham is a collaborative, regional effort to familiarize general practitioners and nurse practitioners from and around Durham region to their local medical colleagues. As our regions continue to move toward an integrative care approach, it is important the provider-patient relationship grows with it. Family physicians and nurse practitioners are often the first point of contact patients and caregivers. The PCN Durham team wants to share local health resources to increase our regional health system literacy. Aligned with the Durham OHT vision, primary care can effectively move towards an integrative care model for our patients.
