Secure PCN Leadership and Management Training Funding

The 2024-25 PCN DES contract specification allows for a Leadership and Management payment, but this is
now combined into the core PCN Funding. Please click here to read the updated DES contract in full.

What does this mean?
It means that practices can utilise the PCN Funding payment to have training through Dispex for Leadership
& Management training for your Dispensary! Either as an individual practice or at PCN level.  Please note,
Dispex holds no responsibility for NHS England’s decision on payments. All PCNs operate differently.

Ensure you provide your PCN team with our email training@dispex.net, we will invoice your PCN for payment.
