Treat Yourself Better
Guardian says: ‘General practice is not the only alternative to hospital care’
I am also attaching a link to an article from the Guardian that I hope will resonate well with your teams thinking and so I would be grateful if the link is circulated to the teams looking at developing joint working primary care and with hospitals and whole of primary care (not just surgeries).http://www.theguardian.com/healthcare-network/2014/jul/31/general-practice-alternative-hospital-care
It must be said that whilst there are isolated examples of new developments, speaking to secretaries of LDCs and LOCs, we get a feeling that most CCGs cannot see much beyond GP surgeries, although the policy makers and politicians say integration is important.
