Primary Care Networks
Across BC, divisions of family practice along with health authorities, First Nations and community partners are working to establish primary care networks (PCNs).
A Primary Care Network (PCN) is a network of local Family Physicians and other primary care and social service providers within a community. PCNs focus on providing a team-based approach to primary care, on a foundation of Patient Medical Homes (PMH)s.
This patient-centered model makes it easier for Family Physicians to work together and to access resources and support to provide the care their patients need. For patients, PCNs will make it easier to access primary care and other health supports.
Surrey-North Delta's vision for our PCN community is excellent patient- and family-centred care and wellness, provided by integrated and collaborative community networks of PMHs, specialized care programs and community organizations.
The diagram below shows our vision for the interconnectedness of health services, Family Physicians and other health care providers.
Surrey-North Delta has six PCNs, each with its own Neighbourhood Network of connected Family Physicians.
Each PCN is governed by a neighbourhood steering committee that sets the priorities and is accountable for the operations of primary care services in that neighbourhood. Representatives from the six neighbourhood steering committees also work together to ensure services are aligned across Surrey-North Delta.

Surrey-North Delta's Six PCNs are:
