Planning and managing primary care services: lessons from the NHS in England

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


High quality primary care services are an essential part of a successful health service. However, the planning and management of such services is complex. Using evidence from a study of recent extensive changes in the English NHS we highlight the need for local service oversight by managers who understand local conditions and needs. We also suggest that the recent English experience supports an incremental policy adjustment approach rather than wholesale organisational change.
