Primary Care Network (PCN)

To meet the increasing needs of NHS patients, practices have begun working together and with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in "primary care networks".

Primary care networks build on the core of current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care.

Henfield Medical Centre is a part of the Chanctonbury PCN; this network consists of the following practices:

  • Henfield Medical Centre
  • Steyning Medical Practice
  • Glebe Surgery
  • Billingshurst Surgery

The Clinical directors of our entire network are our very own GP's, Dr Karen Crawford-Clarke and Dr Gordana Ninkovic-Chapman

Pharmacy2u is NOT your local pharmacy and has nothing to do with us

You may have received a letter in the post or email inviting you to get your repeat prescription from a company called Pharmacy2u.

Here are some important facts about Pharmacy2u which we feel you should know:

  • Pharmacy2u is not your local community pharmacy and has nothing to do with us.
  • Pharmacy2u is a distance-selling (internet only) pharmacy based on an industrial estate.
  • As a patient, you cannot have any face-to-ace contact.
  • In October 2015, they were fined £130,000 for selling their patients’ details to marketing companies.
  • Over Christmas 2015, they failed to send out prescriptions for three weeks, leaving patients without essential medicines.
  • In February 2017, the CQC inspect Pharmacy2u, finding it was ‘’not safe, effective or well led’’
  • We believe that an internet business like this is no substitute for your local pharmacy.
  • Please support your local pharmacy.

We have implemented the Accessible Information Standard

What does this mean for you? 

The Accessible Information Standard aims to provide carers and patients, who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss with information that they can easily read or understand.  

Please make the staff at the Henfield or Woodlawn Surgeries aware to enable them to try and meet those needs.
