What can GP practices, PCNs and CCGs see?

As a GP practice and PCN

As GP practices are delivering the Network Contract DES on behalf of their PCN, data can be view at two levels on Ardens Manager.

Aggregate PCN level activity will be visible as well as GP practice level activity. Benchmarking between GP practices will also be possible to compare activity across your PCN.

As a CCG

As the Network Contract DES is a national contract, CCGs are effectively a delegated authority to monitor PCN activity on behalf of NHS England.

This means that only PCN aggregate data will be visible and individual GP practice level data will be hidden. CCGs will however be able to benchmark their various PCNs against each other.
