Personal Medical Services Pilots in Londonby Richard Lewis, Clare Jenkins, Steve Gillam
The King's Fund and the National Primary Care and Development Centre are in collaboration on a national project to support and evaluate PMS pilots in London. This publication concludes that in their first year the four projects made progress in organizing new ways of working. They include a scheme in Hillingdon bringing together several practices to provide better services for older people and one in Streatham Hill in which an NHS trust has employed a nurse-led practice to meet the needs of asylum-seekers, homeless people and people with mental health problems. The publication found that health authorities had been reticent about the scheme because of the need to focus on primary care groups and to reduce their management costs. It calls on health authorities and PCGs to invest in their own pilot projects as a way of tackling gaps in local services.
