The provision of out-of-hours care in England: sixteenth report of session 2006-07, report, together with formal minutes, oral and written evidence
The Stationery Office, 14 mrt. 2007 - 46 pagina's
Approximately 9 million patients receive urgent primary out-of -hours care in England. In April 2004 the Department of Health gave GPs the chance to opt out of providing this service and transfer responsibility to the Primary Care Trust. This report looks at three main issues related to the change: how well did the Department of Health prepare; how did the new service perform and what did it cost. It concludes that the preparation was shambolic both at local and national level and although the new service is starting to improve performance against key access targets is still not good enough. In addition the cost of the new out-of-hours service has been £70 million higher than was foreseen.
