Scotland has today (October 2 2003) pledged to spend £10.5m ($17.5m) to expand and modernise community-based primary care services over two years. Local health care co-operatives (LHCCs) will help decide how £3m and £7.5m will be spent in 2003-04 and 2004-05, respectively. One of the main areas to benefit from the funding will be to improve the management of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, said health minister Malcolm Chisholm.
