TABA+ Primary Care Network

TABA+ Logo

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan. They provide the structure and funding for services to be developed locally, in response to the needs of the patients they serve. PCNs will help to join up services at a local level, focusing on the specific needs of these local populations, with patients still accessing routine GP appointments as they do now. 

Thirteen of the GP practices within Wigan have joined together to form the TABA+ Primary Care Network. They are: 


Sevenbrooks Medical Centre

Meadowview Surgery (Dr Atrey & Partner)

Nelson Street Surgery (Pitalia SSP)

Poplar Street Surgery (Pitalia SSP)

The Surgery, Tyldesley (Dr CP Khatri)

The Surgery, Astley (Dr Vardhan)

Dr Sivakumar & Gude

Boothstown Medical Centre

Elliott Street Surgery

Astley General Practice (Pitalia SSP)

Bee Fold Lane Surgery

Dr Vasanth & Partner (Bag Lane)

Our surgery teams are working closely with each other, enjoying the ability to share expertise and resources, to develop new services. Our vision is to continue to improve the quality of care that we provide in alignment with the need of our patient population. 


What are Primary Care Networks?

PCNs build on current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. Clinicians describe this as a change from reactively providing appointments to proactively providing care for the people and communities they serve. Where emerging PCNs are in place in parts of the country, there are clear benefits for patients and clinicians. PCNs usually have a 30-50k population and are geographically contiguous (next to or touching another). All GP practices in our area have signed up to be a member of a PCN.  You can read the NHS England PCN FAQs here and view the BMA PCN handbook (March 2019) here.
