Abstract

In some areas where there is a concentration of care homes, GPs have expressed concern about their capacity to provide an effective service to residents without additional resources. Some primary care trusts (PCTs) have since responded by making funds available to enable an improved service to be established. This article looks at the impact of one local enhanced service on the work of GPs, care staff and residents in one London borough.
