PCC (Primary Care Collaborative) initiative boosts Scots' access to diagnostics:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Scotland has today (March 25 2003) pledged to spend £7.6m ($11.9m) over three years to extend the role of around 400 general practices in providing diagnostic and treatment services. The Scottish Primary Care Collaborative (PCC), based on a similar initiative in England, will seek to increase access to services in key areas of healthcare, such as chronic diseases. The initial work of the collaborative will be to assess capacity and demand for such services. Diabetes is a prime candidate of such reforms. A further £1.5m is to be spent on establishing 15 diabetes clinical management networks, the Scottish Executive also announced today, with the aim of improving access to diagnostic and treatment services. These networks should be in place by September 2004.
