Provider Engagement Network

What the Provider Engagement Network is.

The Provider Engagement Network (PEN) is the way in which Devon County Council and Devon’s two NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups engage with independent providers and Health & Social Care services.
Most social care services such as care homes and home care agencies are delivered by independent providers. Devon County Council is committed to working with these providers to help manage the social care market, whether or not we contract with them.
